Monroeville, PA – Around 6:30 A.M. on December 27, 2020, Monroeville fire crews were dispatched to an automatic fire alarm at the Monroeville Mall. Crews arrived to investigate and found water flowing inside the building along with a moderate smoke condition. Crews made entry and found a fire in the back of a store being held in check by the sprinkler system. A crew from Truck 4 cut the security gate and quickly extinguished the fire. Due to the size of the building and the volume of smoke, vent trucks from Westmoreland City and Greensburg were requested to the scene. Crews stayed on scene for about two hours ventilating the building. The fire is now under investigation and the mall was able to open by noon.
