Lake Park store re-opens after scare

February 9, 2007

Lake Park - A South Georgia business has re-opened after a hazardous material scare last night.

An employee of the Dollar General on Highway 41 in Lake Park was hospitalized after having a seizure at work.

Later, two other employees were taken to the hospital with headaches and chest pains.

As a precaution, Lake Park, Lowndes County and Valdosta fire fighters and Hazmat teams were called to the store to investigate if a hazardous material had caused the symptoms in the employees.

The Hazmat team removed some plant food, although the bags were closed and no hazardous materials were found on them.

All three employees were treated and released.
