Detroit — Northbound lanes of Interstate 75 after Interstate 96 have reopened after a hazmat team cleared a fuel spill on Monday, officials said.

Michigan Department of Transportation officials said a jack-knifed semitrailer overturned, spilling an unknown quantity of fuel on the road at 6:10 p.m. Monday. The spill occurred at I-75 near Rosa Parks Boulevard. 

MDOT spokeswoman Diane Cross said the spill required a hazardous materials team response. Crews spent three hours cleaning the spill.

It's unclear what type of fuel was spilled. Michigan State Police said there were no injuries resulting from the incident.
