Oakridge Anchor Store Evacuated


Fire forced the evacuation of the Oakridge Macy's Friday afternoon. 

San Jose fire says they were able to control a two alarm fire in the store's electrical room.

Firefighters arrived at the scene at about 2:50 p.m. soon after an  alarm went off at the store at 925 Blossom Hill Road, fire Capt. Chuck  Rangel said.       Crews discovered smoke coming through the store's main electrical  room, which had activated a sprinkler.    

The store was evacuated around 3 p.m., and firefighters had the  fire controlled by 4:15 p.m., Rangel said. Customers were allowed to return  to the store shortly afterwards.

Rangel said the cause is still undetermined, but said that the  fire was electrical in nature as it triggered an electrical outage in some  other areas of the mall, outside of the Macy's store.

All power has been restored to the store and to the rest of the  mall, Rangel said.

No ne was hurt.
