DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – This is a case where the picture looked scarier than the situation actually was.

A stack of plastic pallets caught fire Tuesday afternoon behind Kroger in Decatur. The store is located in Decatur.

From the road, it looked like the store was on fire.  However, the fire was just behind Kroger.  There is some smoke damage to the outside of the building, but firefighters say the store was not damaged.

The fire is now out.
