    Police: Blaze in NY Walmart's Xmas-tree section
    (AP) – 2 hours ago

    WESTBURY, N.Y. — Police say a fire has broken out among Christmas trees for sale outside a Walmart on New York's Long Island during a busy holiday shopping weekend.

    Nassau County police say in a statement that the blaze was reported around 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Westbury store. There are no immediate reports of injuries.

    Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokesman Dan Fogelman says the busy store was evacuated because of the fire in the store's garden shop.

    Fogelman says it is unclear how many people were in the store at the time or how much damage was caused. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    The store remains closed and will reopen on Sunday.

    The Westbury Fire Department had no immediate comment.
