Ohio Woman Sets Fire in South Euclid Wal-Mart, Steals a Bike

Earlier this week, we wrote about the worst Wal-Mart in America which, by all accounts, happens to be located right here in sunny northeast Ohio.

Today, another area Wal-Mart is in the news after a woman allegedly set fire to a clothing rack at the South Euclid branch, then stole a bike while employees attempted to extinguish the fames.

Cleveland.com's Ryllie Danylko reports: 

The small fire started about 11:45 a.m. Friday at Warrensville Center Road store, according to a police report.

The flames were quickly extinguished, and no one was hurt.

A surveillance video showed the woman standing near a children's pajama clearance rack, police said. The woman quickly walked away as the pajamas caught fire.

She then went to the front of the store and grabbed a blue bike.

She left the store with the bike when store employees were distracted by the fire.

Anyone with information is asked to kindly contact the authorities at  216-381-1234.
