Midtown Plaza partially reopens after possible electrical fire in parkade
Saskatoon fire says large breaker failed in mechanical room in mall's parkade
Saskatoon's Midtown Plaza remains partially closed Tuesday afternoon after an equipment room fire Monday evening.
As of noon, the mall said the parkade and tower had reopened, and the doors had been unlocked.
Most stores remain closed, although the Hudson's Bay store was still open.
All businesses are expected to reopen Wednesday.
The Saskatoon Fire Department says it received a call about smoke and a possible electrical fire in a mechanical room at the Midtown Plaza parkade on Monday.
A 911 call was made just before 6 p.m. CST, reporting smoke and a possible fire in the parkade.
When firefighters arrived they found a "significant" amount of smoke, according to a press release from Saskatoon Fire.
Fire crews and mall security made sure the building was evacuated and closed.
The preliminary investigation determined a large breaker had failed in an electrical room, producing a large amount of smoke.
All electrical sources were secured off by fire crews, according to the fire department.
The incident isn't considered suspicious and it's not yet clear how much the damage was caused by the breaker failure.
