HazMat crew called in

PHOENIX -- Westbound Bethany Home Road was closed at 39th Avenue for a time Friday morning due to a reported HazMat situation.

Details were sketchy, but Phoenix Fire Dispatch confirmed that there was "product" in the road, although they did not know what that product was.

A 3TV photographer spoke to crews on the scene, who confirmed that the "product" was actually medical waste. That waste was wrapped, so it's not known exactly what was involved.
