The store is closed for the remainder of the day Tuesday, but will reopen Wednesday, a sign at the store said.

“Emergency closure for the day (Tuesday), we apologize for any inconvenience,” the store announced on its Facebook page at about 2 p.m.

Maine Military Supply specializes in military surplus items, including tactical gear, guns, ammunition, knives and crossbows, as well as hunting, fishing and camping supplies. It also features a 4,000-square-foot shooting range with guns available for rent, and a paintball course.

Emergency vehicles at the scene included the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, Holden Police Department, Holden Fire Department and Brewer Police Department.
