BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (TBO.com) —Wal-Mart employees at the intersection of Wiscon Road and U.S. 41 said they heard the screams just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.
“Get out! Get out!”
Brooksville Fire Department, Hernando County Fire Rescue, and Brooksville Police Department responded at 9:26 a.m. to a mechanical fire at the store, according to Brooksville Captain William Kaplan.
“One of the floor buffing machines was involved,” he said, adding that most of the damage was from the sprinkler system that doused shelved products in the back storage area where the fire began. “The fire was extinguished within 15 minutes. We have a forklift in there now bringing stuff out that is still smoldering. With the assistance of Wal-Mart staff, we cleared the store of patrons relatively quickly.”
