Peachtree City Fire Department Chief Wilbur Harbin told reporters and local media the fire broke out around 7 p.m. and engulfed the retail portion of the store, with several social media videos capturing the thick, black smoke spreading from the rooftop.
Firefighters took on the fire from inside the store at first but then the roof collapsed, forcing the blaze to be attacked from outside the Walmart. Several nearby fire departments assisted in putting out the fire.
