Bellevue Fire and Rescue says a burning cigarette butt receptacle and a trash receptacle lead to a small fire outside the Home Depot at 2595 Eaton Road on Wednesday just before midnight.
Crews say the fire set off the sprinkler system outside the building. The store was not open at the time, but a cleaning crew was inside. Nobody was injured.
Firefighters quickly put out the fire and shut off the sprinkler system.
Besides a broken window, the building was not damaged. The heat however did damage some outdoor furniture outside the store.
Crews say the fire started in the cigarette butt receptacle outside of the entrance door.
