SNELLVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Fire officials say employees of a Wal-Mart northeast of Atlanta were able to douse the flames of a fire inside the men’s section before the blaze spread anywhere else.

Authorities say firefighters encountered smoke as they entered the store in the Snellville area of Gwinnett County around 7:45 p.m. Sunday and found the fire smoldering in a rack of clothes.

Officials say the store workers used portable fire extinguishers and firefighters then put the fire out completely.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined and was under investigation.
