Lee County- Fireman received a call about a fire in the Lee County Walmart store's trash compactor around 9:15 Sunday morning.

Luckily, the fire was small, and firefighters put out the flames in just minutes.

"Walmart did a good job. They evacuated the building. All the systems worked properly. We had a good response time. Everything went smooth," says Lt. Paul Branch.

No one was hurt, and no property was damaged in the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
