The Western Taney County Fire Protection District responded to a 911 call Monday, Sept. 20, at approximately 10 a.m. after a report of smoke inside the Country Mart grocery store, located in Hollister.
The smoke’s source was found to be inside the Barrels Wine & Spirits store that is connected to Country Mart. Assistant Fire Chief Chris Bird told Branson Tri-Lakes News the smoke was coming from an air conditioning unit.
“We had a call about smoke in the liquor store next to Country Mart,” Bird said. “We responded with four engines and a ladder company. Upon arrival there was a lot of haze in the liquor store. After further investigation, we found a burned up motor in the inside A/C unit.”
No one was injured in the incident.
