Officials in Millburn say a worker was injured after investigating an electrical panel under The Mall at Short Hills.
Several fire trucks responded Tuesday afternoon following reports of an explosion and heavy smoke coming from the panel. But officials say, there wasn't a fire.
"It appears that the panel shorted, had issues internally,” says Chief Robert Echavarria, of the Millburn Fire Department. “One of the workers, mall staff, suffered minor injuries and is being treated at a local hospital."
The mall was not damaged or evacuated, but several stores did lose power.
