The Columbus Fire Department was dispatched to investigate a gas odor at the Commons Wednesday morning.
Captain Mike Wilson says that while en route, firefighters received a fire alarm at the same location. When crews arrived on scene they were advised that there was smoke in the electrical room. The Commons Mall and Cummins office building were being evacuated at this time. Firefighters used a thermal imaging camera, but no fire was found. They did learn that an electrical contractor was installing new electrical lines. Upon further investigation it was determined that a short in a transformer caused the smoke.
There were no injuries or serious damage reported.
