Four minors were arrested this week for setting a fire at Walmart on September 30.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said that the suspects are charged with criminal mischief and charges of first-degree arson could take place in the future.

State law prohibits the names of the suspects from being revealed because they are minors.

Edwards also said that the second fire, which took place Sunday at Walmart is still under investigation.

Walmart reopened Thursday morning during its regular hours.
