Sonora, CA– A fire that broke out in lower Save Mart has now been contained and the store is open again.
Fire Chief Mike Burrows says the fire broke out at about 11:30 today in the produce section of the store. An electrical issue caused one display case to light on fire exposing the rest of the produce section to smoke.
The fire was put out by Save Mart employees with a fire extinguisher. The store was closed momentarily and is now open with the exception of the produce department which will be examined by the environmental health department.
