The Richland Fred Meyer is closed possibly for the next few days due to a man starting a fire in the store.

Store Officials say that shopping may resume after Sunday but right now will be closed and the building off limits to customers.

The fire started last night as a man started the fire in the north end of the store leaving customers and staff to evacuate the store.

Richland Police are now on the hunt for the suspected arsonist. If you have any information, please contact the police department.
