Akron firefighters are cleaning up after a semi caught fire near Chapel Hill Mall.
Lt. Leon Henderson tells AkronNewsNow.com it took firefighters almost 30 minutes Thursday morning to calm the blaze near HoneyBaked Ham.
Witnesses described seeing smoke billowing from the semi tractor-trailer.
"When they got there, they saw the fully involved semi truck and they basically needed additional help," Lt. Leon Henderson said.
Firefighters used to water lines to stop it from spreading.
The smoke set off fire alarms at Macys department store and inside the mall. No one was injured.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
