Last Tuesday night, a fire broke out in the toilet paper and paper towel aisle of the H-E-B in Bastrop.

The store had to close for nearly a week to replace every product and clean every shelf of the store. With the help of more than 1,000 people who were involved in the clean-up, the store reopened at 6 a.m. this morning.

No one was injured in the blaze, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
