Just after noon today fire alarms rang out at Polson Place Mall located on Highway 6 in Vernon.
Stores were evacuated. Vernon Fire attended.
Fortunately there was no fire.
Turns out workers doing remediation work where the Red Barn store was once located accidentally cut through wiring crucial to the malls fire alarm system.
As things returned to normal, businesses reopened, with one exception.
The doors to the Galaxy Theatre were open but patrons tell ExNews staff is not immediately resuming normal operations, disappointing news for those hoping to catch an afternoon show.
Polson Place Mall Staff is on fire watch until the system is restored.
