GREENVILLE, AL (WSFA) - The Greenville Walmart is back to normal business hours after a fire was set in the store a week ago.

According to a post by the store's Facebook page, all areas of the store are open, but some categories of merchandise are unavailable. The Walmart team is working to get the products restocked.

The store was closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. a week ago so crews could repair fire damage. Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn said the suspect, a 17-year-old minor, is charged with first-degree arson after setting fire to a pillow display near the middle of the store. He said flames reached up to the ceiling before they were extinguished.

A motive for the arson was not immediately clear.

A viewer named Renee Goss shared a photo showing smoke visible inside the store.
