Multiple units from The Villages Public Safety Department and Sumter County Fire Rescue scrambled to a Villages drug store Wednesday night after receiving reports of a fire inside the business.
When firefighters arrived at the Walgreens at 2615 Burnsed Blvd. near the Sumter County Service Center in Wildwood, they discovered a small electrical fire that had triggered some of the sprinklers inside the store. The staff had evacuated into the parking lot and firefighters completed a thorough search and inspection of the building.
An employee said the store had remained open Wednesday after the incident was over and was able to reopen Thursday with normal business hours.
