Workers initially tried to snuff the smoldering section of mostly rubber materials with garden-style hoses before summoning firefighters around 2:45 p.m., Deputy Police Chief Robert Guidetti told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Macy’s and a portion of the mall were evacuated.

The all-clear was given just before 4 p.m. as firefighters cleaned up. The rest of the mall was reopened before then.
