Kroger At Barracks Road Evacuated After Power Line Hit

The Kroger store in the Barracks Road Shopping Center was evacuated Tuesday morning after a backhoe hit a power line. It happened at around 9:30 at the back of the store, causing arcing of a transformer. Smoke and carbon monoxide reached unsafe levels inside Kroger, and the store was evacuated as a result. City firefighters ventilated the building and left just before noon.
