Electrical fire at Whole Foods Market Around Town, posted by Tyler Hanley, online editor of Palo Alto Online, on Jan 27, 2009 at 2:01 pm Tyler Hanley is a member (registered user) of Palo Alto Online
We have had reports of an electrical fire at Whole Foods Market this afternoon, shortly before 2 p.m. I just entered the market myself and thin layers of smoke are wafting around the vegetable/fruits area of the store. A paramedics van pulled up as I was leaving. The store has not -- and apparently will not -- be evacuated. Our staff writer Don Kazak just returned from speaking to some employees and we will be posting a story shortly. This is not a major fire, but shoppers sensitive to smoke may want to avoid the store for the next hour or so.
