Authorities: New Jersey mall partially evacuated after fire in Hollister store

WAYNE -

Authorities say Willowbrook Mall in Wayne was partially evacuated over the weekend after a fire broke out in a clothing store.

According to Passaic County prosecutors, fire crews were called Saturday a little before 11 a.m. after the fire was reported in the Hollister store at the mall.

Officials said people were moved off that wing of the property after "significant" smoke spilled into a Bloomingdale's department store nearby.

No injuries were reported.

The North Jersey Record reported a sign in the window at the Hollister store Sunday said it was closed due to "an electrical problem."

Authorities haven't released information about the cause of the fire.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
