The Kroger Marketplace at Stonegate Center in Somerset was evacuated Wednesday night after smoke filled the building, WKYT reported.
Somerset Fire Chief Tyler Jasper told WKYT’s Phil Pendleton that police suspect that the fire was intentionally set in the chip aisle.
There were no reports of injuries, and the extent of the damage was not yet known.
The store off U.S. 27, one of two Krogers in Somerset, was expected to reopen at noon.
