An overheated refrigerator produced enough smoke to temporarily shut down a Safeway store in Orting this morning, according to Orting Valley Fire & Rescue.
Firefighters responded to the store at 215 Whitesell Street Northwest about 9:44 a.m. and evacuated everybody inside.
The smoke was caused by an overheated refrigerator unit on aisle four, investigators said. An estimate of damages was not immediately available.
Safeway reopened around 10:30 a.m.
