Charlottesville Firefighters Respond to Electrical Incident at Kroger


Oct. 29, 2013

Charlottesville firefighters have been called out to the Kroger grocery store located in the Barracks Road Shopping Center.

On Tuesday, firefighters responded to an incident where a backhoe reportedly hit a power line which caused arcing at a transformer at the rear of Kroger.

The electrical arcing caused some smoke and released unsafe levels of carbon monoxide. The building was evacuated, though there hasn't been any report of any injuries.
