BELTON, Texas (KWTX) A smoking fan led to a brief evacuation Thursday at the Walmart Supercenter at 2604 North Main St. in Belton.

The ventilation fan in a back room of the store seized up and began to smoke just after noon Thursday, Belton city spokesman Paul Romer said.

The store was evacuated as a precaution, he said, but the evacuation lasted for only 10 to 15 minutes.
