CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The Walmart on Gunbarrel Road is temporarily closed due to a fire.  

Just before 7:00 p.m. Wednesday a fire was reported in the women's clothing section involving one circular rack. 

The smoke and fire activated the building's sprinkler system, which quickly extinguished the flames. No injuries were reported. Damages to the store are relatively minor, but there is some smoke and water damage to clean up.

The entire building was evacuated and the store is expected to remain closed for the night. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
