Investigators from the Ohio State Fire Marshal's Office are examining the remains of a fire at the Halloween Store outside the Ohio Valley Mall.
Cumberland Trail Fire Chief Ken Saffell says the blaze broke out at approximately 10 p.m. Monday, in a display in the store.
Firefighters remained on the scene until 1 a.m. and are returning again for further investigation.
The Halloween Store is next door to David's Bridals, outside the mall.
Mall Manager George Diab says the sprinkler system was activated and put out the fire quickly, but there is smoke and water damage.
He says a cleaning crew has been contacted and the store is anticipating reopening in several days.
