Duluth Kmart Fire Called Arson

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Officials hope images from security cameras will help identify suspects in an arson at a Duluth Kmart.

Duluth fire officials say the fire was arson but gave few details.

Firefighters were called around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday to the store near Miller Hill Mall and found several racks of clothes on fire. Flames were starting to work their way up a wall.

The Duluth News Tribune reports the store was closed for part of the day but had reopened by Wednesday evening with the fire-damaged section closed off to customers.

A Kmart spokeswoman declined to release an estimate of the amount of damage.

    You think we will find out what causes a fire at a State funded womens shelter too?

    I wonder if it was an ex-employee that was “fired” from his/her job that may have stated the fire? If so, maybe the law is looking at every former employee whom was fired from the store recently.
