A small fire was reported inside the Colchester Stop & Shop Friday morning.
According to officials, fire crews have been called out to the store a few times over the past few weeks to investigate an odor of gas, but could not find the source.
Emergency officials said the gas line became separated on Friday, which caused the small fire.
The fire was quickly extinguished and only a few ceiling tiles were damaged.
No injuries were reported.
