SHERMAN, Tex. -- After a fire at the Kroger Grocery Store in Sherman Wednesday night, they are open for business on Thursday.

Firefighters got the call around nine o'clock Wednesday night that the men’s bathroom was on fire. Upon arrival, they found heavy smoke in the back of the store.

Fire Marshal Danny Fuller says it looked suspicious, so he and the fire chief were called in to investigate

"We’re investigating as to the origin of the cause, during that time, an anonymous person called Kroger and implicated a person that set the fire,” Fuller said.

The store was closed for about and hour and half but is open now.

Smoke damage is estimated at about $5,000.

    Anonymous, you are the stupid one and also very insensitive. My father is dead and has been for 20 years! Furthermore, I work and buy my own food. And there is a very unsavory character that loiters in the Kroger parking lot. Maybe if you had ever left this small town, you would not be so sensitive about bums. Nothing good comes from bums bumming around. Look at the homeless situation in Dallas...near Fairpark. Crime is skyhigh. You insensitive jerk.

    Maybe it was the bum that hangs around the front of the store, ... Long brown hair, white male, dirty. Look into it! I can't believe they let him hang around. He's there all the time!
