One of the busiest spots on a Saturday in Petrolia is closed right now and its not clear how long it will remain closed.
Petrolia/North Enniskillen firefighters were called to Heidi’s Independent Grocery store just before 9 am after employees smelled “electrical” smoke. Shortly after that, some of the sprinklers in the store went off.
Owner Heidi Soudant was in the parking lot with her employees, contacting the head office to see if an emergency restoration crew could be available if it was needed. She was not able to get into the building immediately to assess the damage, so she was unsure how long the store would be closed.
The Garden Centre, which is separate from the store, remains open.
