NorthPark Mall evacuated after a small fire broke out Saturday afternoon and the shopping center will remain closed for the day as Dallas-Fire Rescue crews will investigate the scene.
Firefighters received a call at 1:45 p.m. for a fire inside the Eataly construction space.
Crews were alerted that a small fire broke out near a trash conveyor, and firefighters responded to the scene bringing flames under control. They are now making efforts to clean the building of smoke.
Before firefighters reached the place, the mall was evacuated, and fire officials initially said there were injuries reported, but later determined there were no injuries from the fire.
According to reports from further Investigations, this fire was accidental and was caused by "combustible materials, covering an out-of-service escalator belt, that was ignited by sparks from hot work that was being done nearby."
