Authorities said a woman started a fire today at a Walmart, causing the store to shut down.

WLKM FM reports crews responded early today to the Walmart in Three Rivers. No injuries were reported.

Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee said there was no structural damage, but meat, produce and some shelf items had to be discarded due to water and smoke damage.

Authorities said surveillance video shows the woman setting the fire by burning paper before leaving.

The building's fire-suppression system limited the fire to one aisle in the store.

The fire prompted officials to keep the store closed today.

Plans call for it to re-open tomorrow morning, but the pharmacy is open in the meantime.
