(BLOOMINGTON) - A fire in the produce section of the Bloomington Wal-Mart shut down the store for about a half hour last night.

Monroe County's Van Buren Fire Department officials say flames in the store's largest meat refrigerator were seemingly caused by a wiring short.

The fire reportedly started around 9:20 last night and employees and customers weren't let back in until around 10:00pm.

Even at that, the store had cordoned off the grocery area of the store.
