Walmart reopens after fire

The West Kelowna Walmart Superstore was forced to close early Saturday night after a small fire forced an evacuation of the store.

The fire was reported about 9:30 p.m. in the jewellery department.

West Kelowna fire officials say some paper caught fire after possibly being too close to some wiring.

An employee put the fire out using a dry chemical fire extinguisher.

The store was evacuated and remained closed for the rest of the night while firefighters properly ventilated the building.

There were no injuries.

Calls made to the West Kelowna Walmart Superstore confirm the store has reopened Sunday morning in its normal capacity. However an employee said no official statement can be made on the fire without district approval.
