The owner shut down the store itself Wednesday but says the store could reopen Thursday. “I really hope so. That just shows how strong the community is and everyone has this store’s back,” said shopper Natasha Yazzie.

The state fire marshal and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives were also on scene. The cause remains under investigation.
