BALTIMORE (AP) — CVS Health says it will rebuild its store locations that were badly damaged by fire last week during protests in Baltimore.

CVS Health President and CEO Larry Merlo said Wednesday he can't say exactly when damaged stores will reopen, but CVS is working to reopen them as soon as possible.

The company says two store locations will be rebuilt. CVS has nearly 30 stores and more than 500 employees in Baltimore.

The Woonsocket, Rhode Island-based chain says it paid employees at the two stores for their regularly scheduled hours the week of the protests, whether or not they were able to work. The company also says the displaced employees who want to work in other CVS locations will be able to do so.
