Firefighters said the sprinkler system at the Kroger store in Atlanta's Edgewood neighborhood prevented a late night fire from spreading the to rest of the store.

Investigators were able to determine that the blaze was started by an electrical malfunction in the charger cord for a battery operated pallet jack in the loading dock area.

The employees and customers were evacuated and there were no reported injuries.

The damage was significant enough to close the 24-hour store for repairs and cleanup.

Officials told CBS Atlanta that the store reopened at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday.
