TARENTUM, Pa. (AP) - Nobody was hurt when a propane tank on a lift vehicle leaked, prompting crews to evacuate a Wal-Mart store in western Pennsylvania.

Assistant manager Renee Williams tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1OA6VWB ) that nobody was hurt during the incident which lasted from about 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Friday at the store near the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills mall. That’s located in Frazer Township, about 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Frazer police say firefighters determined the propane tank leaked near a ventilation fan, which is why fumes spread throughout the store.

About 30 customers and workers were evacuated from the store. Firefighters used fans to clear the fumes while those inside were checked out by medical personnel.
