Walmart, 2023

According to the February 3 article, "Walmart Is Temporarily Closing More Stores, Effective Immediately", on January 29, CBS News Chicago reported that a fire had just broken out at a Walmart in Waukegan, which is located in the state of Illinois.

According to the news organization, the camera captured footage of large flames burning inside the structure while clients were still present inside the establishment. Smoke was also seen filling the air.

"We're outraged that someone would intentionally set fire to our Waukegan store and force us to close temporarily," a Walmart representative told CBS News Chicago. "We'll assess any damage and reopen as quickly and safely as possible."

According to a report by a local affiliate of ABC station, a fire broke out at a Walmart on February 2 night in Holland, Ohio.
