LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials say a weekend fire that caused shoppers to flee a Walmart store in Las Vegas was intentionally set.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said the injured person was taken to a hospital after sprinklers activated and firefighters arrived to douse flames in the paper towel aisle Sunday evening at the Walmart Supercenter several miles west of downtown.

Fire officials on Monday estimated structural damage at about $10,000 but said water and smoke damage to items in the store was about $200,000.

Arson investigators were reviewing store security video and did not immediately release information about possible suspects in the case.
