SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Safeway supermarket in midtown Sacramento was evacuated for about an hour and a half after several people reported feeling sick while in the store Friday, according to Sacramento City Fire officials.
Fire and Hazmat crews responded to the Safeway at 1814 19th Street at about 8:15 p.m. About two dozen employees were evacuated after Freon gas from a deli refrigeration unit leaked and employees noticed a cloud of gas. About 20 people reported feeling dizzy but didn’t require hospitalization.
County health officials were checking out the building.
The store was reopened at about 9:45 p.m. after officials said no more detectable gas was present.
One person was detained during a disturbance at the store but it wasn’t immediately clear why.
