An Albemarle County fire forced shoppers to evacuate a busy department store Sunday afternoon.

Fire crews say a clothing rack caught on fire at the Kohl's in Hollymead just before 5:00 p.m.

About 30 people had to be evacuated from the store.

Firefighters say the building's sprinkler system extinguished the flames before crews got there. Fire officials are still investigating to determine what sparked that fire.
