Fire on loading dock evacuates Kmart store

A floor-buffing machine caught fire yesterday while being charged in the loading dock area of the Kmart store at 1801 West Alexis Rd., causing a brief evacuation of the store, fire authorities said.

One store employee was transported to St. Anne Mercy Hospital with chest pains. Her name and condition were not released.

A store manager had put out the blaze using a fire extinguisher by the time fire crews arrived at 5:25 p.m. The firefighters evacuated the store, Toledo fire acting Lt. Mike Benadum said.

Damage was estimated at $9,000, Lieutenant Benadum said.
