The two suspects are in their late teens or early 20's according to KFD Captain Brent Seymour.

He says two men were caught on tape starting clothes on fire in the men's and women's clothing sections.

According to Seymour, employees took quick action to put out the fires with fire extinguishers, but around 60 employees and customers had to be evacuated from the store as a precaution.

Seymour says two men bought a few items, then went back inside the store and set the fire.

No one was injured.
