FLANDERS - Mt. Olive police say high winds caused a small section of the roof of the Bed, Bath and Beyond in Flanders to lift up Thursday morning.

According to police, the roof suffered structural damage and a small fire ignited after the partial lift. The fire department was able to quickly extinguish the fire, which was possibly caused by a gas line break due to the roof damage.

The building was evacuated and closed while construction and gas crews worked to repair the roof and gas line. 

The store reopened at around 5 p.m.
