The Polo Ralph Lauren  store in the  Tanger Outlet Center was briefly evacuated late Sunday afternoon after an overheated air conditioner unit in the ceiling left a smell of smoke in the building, according to Riverhead Town Fire Marshal Dave Andruszkiewicz.

The Riverhead Fire Department responded with several trucks at about 5 p.m. and the store was  reopened shortly afterward.
