A small fire Friday forced the evacuation of Garrison Farm & Home Center in Thorsby.

The fire, which resulted in no injuries, started in the kitchen when a stove eye was turned on with something on top of it, workers said.

“We got it out with a fire extinguisher,” said Kianna Green, who was working at the store at the time of the incident, about 8:30 a.m.

Still, Thorsby Fire and other departments responded to the call and stayed on the scene to help remove smoke from the business.
