(WMC-TV) – The Shelby County bomb squad was called to an Arlington grocery store after a report of an explosion.

The small blast was reported around noon at the Kroger at Highway 70 and Airline Road.

Our crew on the scene reports a man claims that he put dry ice in his water bottle to cool down the water inside.  He left it outside and went inside the store.  That is when the bottle exploded.

There's no report of injuries or damage at this time.
