College Station firefighters responding to the report of a convenience store fire during the Friday morning commute discovered a slight haze inside the building. There was no fire at the Tetco store at Harvey and Texas and there was no evidence of excessive heat or anything still burning. CSFD says the smell of smoke might have come from kicking on the heater for the first time this fall as a layer of dust burns off the heating elements.
