Casey’s South in Knoxville was closed briefly this afternoon after a pump under the soda fountain shorted. Knoxville Fire and Rescue, the Knoxville Police Department, and Marion County Emergency Management responded to the scene at around 3:15 after a report of smoke filling the convenience store. Everyone was evacuated and no one was injured. Knoxville Fire Chief Nick Bonstell says the problem was isolated and the store is now open.
