Firefighters on the scene confirmed smoke was showing from the air conditioning unit on the market’s rooftop, according to Sky Cornell, a spokesman for the Fire Department. 

The heat and smoke was largely isolated to the air conditioning unit, but some had filtered into the store, Cornell said.

The excess smoke within the supermarket resulted in the health department needing to close down the store until store managers received the “OK” following an inspection. 

No injuries have been reported as a result of the fire.
