ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The Barnes & Noble Booksellers location in the 1900 block of U.S. 1 South was briefly evacuated Wednesday after an odor was detected in the store, according to St. Johns Fire Rescue.

Firefighters say they traced the odor to an electrical problem with a rooftop air conditioning unit.

Employees and customers were allowed to re-enter the bookstore after a brief evacuation.
