A fire was roaring in the middle of a Walmart in the Austin area during Thanksgiving.

Someone apparently set two fires inside the store.

Jackie Sinclair, who captured the fire on her camera phone, recalled seeing workers frantically run around and warn customers.

"I couldn't understand her, and then I walked up and there was these big flames everywhere," said Sinclair. "And I was like, 'Oh, okay. That's why she said there's a fire.' I'm like 'time to go!'"

A fire marshal said the fires were set on purpose.

Fire investigators were talking to a possible suspect. The store was shut down for business as a result.
