EDGEWOOD, N.M. (KRQE) – Fire crews were able to put out a fire in a central New Mexico Walmart this morning.
Firefighters were called out to the Walmart in Edgewood just before 10 a.m. on Sunday to reports of a structure fire. Crews from several different municipalities responded to the scene and were able to put the fire out.
No one was injured but officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
“At this time it seems that the fire damage is somewhat contained to a certain area, unknown exactly the extent of it at this time. We called all these resources just because of the large commercial structure and nature it is. The fact that the building is so large,” Assistant Chief of the Santa Fe County Fire Department Jacob Black said.
Employees and customers had to be evacuated. The store will remain closed until further notice.
