A fire at the Kroger in Lebanon forced employees and customers to evacuate Tuesday night.

The Lebanon Fire Department says the fire broke out in the grocery store in the 2400 block of North Lebanon Street around 7:40.  The fire was confined to a case in the produce area of the store but filled the store with heavy smoke.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and worked to clear the smoke out of the building.  About 20 to 30 people were inside the store when the fire broke out but no one was injured.

The store is expected to be closed for 24 to 48 hours to allow for cleaning and replacement of necessary items.  The extent of the damage will be determined once the health department and Kroger representatives complete their inspection of the facility and inventory.
