Shoppers and employees were evacuated from Walmart in Forest Lake Sunday evening.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, employees inside the store noticed a crack in the wall and the structural steel had started to bend.
The store was evacuated at 6:11 p.m. and no one was injured.
The store, which is located at 200 12th Street Southwest, was closed following the evacuation. As of 10:30 p.m. a Walmart employee told KSTP the store, which is open 24 hours a day, had been given the all-clear and had reopened.
According to the sheriff's office, Walmart will handle the investigation and would make repairs to the store if needed.
At this point, additional details have not been released.
