Wal-Mart evacuated

LENOIR CITY (AP) — A Lenoir City Wal-Mart is open again after several patrons complained of shortness of breath and runny eyes.
Wal-Mart spokesman Dennis Alpert said Wal-Mart Store 741 was evacuated on Monday and 13 people were taken to the hospital for evaluation after complaining of irritated eyes and throats.
There were five customers among those taken to the hospital. The other eight were workers. Of those 13 people, only one was admitted to the hospital.
Firefighters said the problem was the result of a chemical reaction in the photo processing lab.
