The Abilene Fire Department was called to the Dollar General at South 7th and Legget around 8:00pm Friday evening.

When firefighters got there, they reported no smoke or flames and only a slight smell. Later, investigators found that a display rack had been set on fire.

Witnesses tell police that two people came into the store and were apparently attempting to steal cell phones. In an effort to cover that up, they set a fire inside the store.

It appears it went out by itself. There is surveillance video which may lead to the suspects, who got away.
