Walmart Fire UPDATE

10:45 p.m.

The fire that evacuated the Atascocita Walmart on FM 1960 is under control. 

Ironically, it was a fire alarm that caught fire.

Mutual aid was required because of a water main break in that area that left fire crews without a nearby water source.

More info coming soon…
