Six cars damaged from fire in Yakima Walmart parking lot

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Six cars were damaged in a fire at the Walmart parking lot near Terrace Heights Sunday afternoon. Firefighters say the fire started in the engine compartment of one of the cars.

Investigators believe the fire was accidental. And say these types of combustions are common. A witness says he saw a car smoking when the driver pulled into the parking lot. When the driver went into the store, the car caught fire and spread to other cars nearby.

"A lot of people were freaking out worried about their cars," said witness Jeremiah Mount. "Some people even ran into their cars to drive it away, to get away from it."

No one was hurt.
