MORRIS — No one was injured when fire evacuated a strip mall Thursday.
Chief Tracey Steffes said workmen were making repairs in a medical office around 11 a.m. at Evergreen Plaza, 425 E. Route 6, when one of the walls started burning.
“There wasn’t a lot of fire damage beside the wall, but the smoke was heavy and went into the other businesses,” Steffes said.
A Chinese buffet and fitness club also occupy the building.
Firefighters had the blaze contained by 11:30 a.m.
