There Was a Fire at the King of Prussia Mall This Morning

A kiosk just outside the food court in The Plaza at the King of Prussia Mall was damaged by a fire this morning. Don't worry, shoppers: The mall opened on time.

A kiosk on the lower level of the King of Prussia mall caught fire this morning. Firefighters put out the early-morning electrical fire at a kiosk right outside the food court, near J.C. Penney and Sears, about 20 minutes after arriving.

Per a blog hosted by the KOP fire company, firefighters were dispatched at 5:20 a.m.

But did this interrupt people’s shopping? Of course not: The mall opened on time at 10 today. Though there was expected to be a delay, even food court restaurants opened on time.

“The fire damage is confined to the kiosk, everything else is smoke damage,” King of Prussia Fire Company Chief Jim Gallagher told KYW 1060.
