Fire at ExxonMobil a Buzzkill for Lunch Crowd

Fire at ExxonMobil a Buzzkill for Lunch Crowd

The lunch crowd at ExxonMobil got a surprise today when the food court and dining room had to be evacuated because of a fire in a lower level. Food-service workers say they were in the midst of preparing and serving lunch for some 900 clients when a burning smell was detected. Service was suspended and the area was evacuated.

A similar smell had been detected yesterday, but business continued as usual.

Several fire trucks responded to today's call. Evacuees remained on the ExxonMobil tower's breezeways and porches, no doubt bemoaning the lunches they left on the tables.
