Fireworks spark flames at Buckhead Target

MINNEAPOLIS (CBS46) -- Target Stores are taking the extraordinary step of closing stores around the country, temporarily, to protect their team members' safety and "helping our community heal."

The Target store closures come after several have been hit by protesters around the country, including here in Atlanta. Friday night, the Target store near Lenox Square mall dealt with a fire and late Saturday night into Sunday morning the Target store on Lindbergh also had a fire reported.

In Atlanta, the Target store in Buckhead (3535 Peachtree Rd) and in South Atlanta (2539 Piedmont Rd NE) will both be closed as a part of Target's plans. Both of these stores will be closed until further notice. As of late Sunday morning, no other Targets were on the company's list to temporarily close.
