VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A Virginia Beach Wal-Mart was evacuated Friday morning for a carbon monoxide incident.

Battalion Chief Amy Valdez told staff heard a carbon monoxide detector going off in the building at 7:42 a.m. Crews arrived at the store in the 600 block of Phoenix Drive, and evacuated the building due to the levels of CO detected.

Valdez said crews secured a HVAC rooftop unit, which they believed was the primary source of the carbon monoxide. The building was being ventilated, but had not reopened as of 3 p.m.
