"It was shooting out like a smoke machine and there were lights flashing, I thought it was some sort of promotion at first. After a few minutes of this , the smoke got thicker so there was a customer and staff announcement for everyone to get out."

It is unclear what caused the incident and staff at the supermarket refused to comment.
