A fire that started in a plastic trash container outside of CVS in Galax on Sept. 3 caused moderate damage to the building, said Galax Fire Chief David Hankley.
The fire department responded to the call at about 10:30 p.m. after a passerby saw the fire in the trash can.
Hankley said the fire spread up to the facade, and smoke extended into the store. He is unsure of how the fire started, but the fire is being investigated.
CVS reopened the next day.
