Welding fire at Walmart sets off sprinklers

A small fire at Walmart in Fort Erie early Wednesday morning set off the sprinkler system causing water damage.

Fire chief Larry Coplen said a welding blanket caught fire while a construction worker was welding inside the store around 1 a.m.

The fire was extinguished quickly and fire fighters assisted with clean up for a couple of hours.

The Walmart manager was “meeting with associates” when called about the incident Wednesday.
