When firefighters entered the building there was a light smoky haze in the back of the store at a food cooler. After further investigation firefighters determined that an electrical box on top of a cooler was arcing and shorting out. Firefighters with the help of store managers were able to locate the breakers for the cooler preventing any further problems.
A store manager had originally noticed smoke coming from the cooler and called 911 and evacuated the store. The store was temporarily closed while firefighters were on scene.
