A faulty power bar gets the blame for a fire at the east Windsor staples on Wednesday.
The fire broke out just after 1pm at the back of the store, and set off the sprinkler system flooding the entire store.
Everyone who was in the store at the time made it out safe.
Fire officials say that lithium batteries stored where the fire started caused the fire to spread.
Damage is set at $1.5 million, but could go higher.
