MAYS LANDING — The Hamilton Mall reopened Friday morning following a Thursday fire that prompted an evacuation that closed much of the shopping center.
The mall reopened at 10 a.m. for regular business hours.
A fire was reported after smoke was found coming from a mechanical room not accessible to the public, Hamilton Township police said.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and contained it to the room, police said. Investigation indicated it was an electrical fire, police said.
No injuries were reported.
The mall was evacuated early Thursday afternoon. Macy’s, JCPenney and Sears reopened later that day, but the rest of its more than 140 stores were closed until Friday morning.
