The Bowling Green Fire Division was dispatched to Kroger on Friday morning for a smell of natural gas.
The call came in at 7:29 a.m. to the store at 1094 N. Main St.
When crews arrived, the building had already been evacuated.
“They were already out when we arrived,” said Deputy Chief Aaron Baer.
Firefighters walked through the store, but did not detect anything, he said.
Maintenance crews shut down the furnaces.
The scene was cleared at 7:49 a.m. and patrons were allowed to re-enter.
