Somers shopping mall evacuated after smoke scare
A shopping mall in Somers was evacuated yesterday after several employees of a CVS were overcome by smoke that spread to several other stores and restaurants.
Authorities say at about 12:15 p.m., several electrical feeder lines nearby failed. Officials say it caused an electrical surge that damaged the air conditioning system inside the CVS, which is housed inside the Somers Town Center.
A total of 12 people were taken to the hospital to be treated for exposure to the fumes.
