Fruitport Fire Chief Ken Doctor said the fire started from a smoldering cigarette butt thrown into a trash can near the store’s back door. The fire then spread to the store’s back wall.

The fire didn’t do any structural damage to the store, Doctor said, and damage costs were estimated at $500 or less.

Norton Shores firefighters also assisted at the scene, Doctor said.
