Im almost completely sure that they need a plausible reason to fire you. Im not saying that you deserved it but they cant fire you without one.
For all we know it could just be OP stretching the truth a bit. OP could be a bad employee, and that would be a pretty good reason. Unlike the FMLs where people are fired for dumb reasons, OP saying no reason makes me more think the company actually had a reason.
Let me tell you the beauty of 'at-will' states. I successfully got a huge contract and made my manager a large bonus. She found out I got a bonus as well for the contract, decided she didn't want to pay me that month so she fired me, then offered me my job back at half the pay. And it was 100% legal of her to do it.
That sucks OP, if you work in a fairly decent sized company you should take it to HR, they need to have a reason to fire you, at least where I'm from
Um I'm pretty sure they can't fire you with out valid reason unless you were still on probation period. So if you were past that I would recommend requesting their policies on termination of employment (should be available to view to current/past employees) then lawyer up
