CROSS LANES, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A grocery store was temporarily shut down Saturday night after a fire scare brought crews to the scene.

Shoppers and employees at the Kroger on Big Tyler Road had to evacuate as firefighters investigated.

Crews say smoke from a nearby bonfire got sucked in by the store's air conditioning and set off alarms.

There was no damage to the store and no one was hurt.

The store has since reopened.
