Wal-Mart Employee Sets 3 Fires Inside Massachusetts Store

September 30, 2016

Police are looking for an employee of a Massachusetts Wal-Mart they say set three fires inside the store, forcing the disposal of all the food on the sales floor.

Police say they identified the suspect through security video. She was seen leaving the parking lot in her car after the fires.

Firefighters who responded to the Sturbridge store on Tuesday for a report of a fire in the jewelry section determined that three fires had been set. They were all extinguished by employees and customers. No one was hurt.

Sturbridge’s health agent tells The Telegram & Gazette that because the food that was exposed to smoke and chemicals from fire extinguishers, it must be disposed of.

Police say the woman faces several charges, including burning a building’s contents.
