Investigation Underway Into California Sam's Club Explosion Suspect

A man is in custody after allegedly setting off two explosive devices at a Sam's Club in Ontario, California.

"And she's saying 'Come, come, come. Run fast!' And I'm like, 'Why do we need to run?' And so she's like, 'The store's on fire, the store's on fire,' one witness said. 

Tracy Sanders is one of several people that were evacuated from the store Thursday.  Authorities say customers and employees were safe and accounted for and there appears to be no damage to the building.  Police say Hugo Gonzalez led officers on a chase after he was seen leaving the store, but eventually pulled over.  

A search of the car turned up materials similar to the devices used in the store.  He was arrested and authorities say he appears to have no connection to the store.  There is no word yet on a motive for the explosion.
