Kwik Star Gas Leak

Iowa Falls firefighters exit Kwik Star after a final sweep of the building Tuesday morning. A total of 14 employees were taking to the ER at Hansen Family Hospital since Sunday night complaining of light-headedness and other symtoms. The cause is still unknown.

It has been determined that sewer gas vented through the store was the cause of 14 Kwik Star employees being taken to the emergency room Oct. 13 and 14.

Kwik Star Public Relations Officer John McHugh said the store reopened last Friday after the problem was solved.
