WEST DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Some Iowa shoppers might be wishing they waited until Friday to search for deals.

Dozens of shoppers in West Des Moines were forced to evacuate from a SuperTarget store last night when the fire alarms went off.

Heavy smoke came from the kitchen area of the store.

"We were called for a fire for Target," said Greg Jones of West Des Moines Fire Department. We arrived to find the building full with smoke, and a fire in the kitchen area that they had been extinguishing with fire extinguishers."

Firefighters quickly evacuated the building and put out the fire. No one was injured.

Investigators say the kitchen was closed at the time. They're still trying to figure out what started the fire.
