Walmart’s popular practice of allowing overnight RV and van parking is called into question after woman sues over fatal parking-lot fire

August 13, 2022

Walmart parking lots have long been a haven for recreational vehicles and other drivers looking to sleep in their cars. But a new lawsuit has invited scrutiny on that practice.

A woman named Essie McKenzie is suing Walmart after her 6-year-old daughter was killed and another daughter, then 9 years old, was left “disfigured” when their minivan became engulfed in flames.  The incident took place during the early morning of August 6, 2019, at a Walmart in Fridley, Minnesota.  Business Insider
