Matteson’s Lincoln Mall was given the all-clear to reopen after a small utility room fire knocked out power to the shopping center on Monday morning.

Matteson village manager Brian Mitchell said the mall was given the OK Monday afternoon.

The mall was expected to reopen on Tuesday.

Mitchell said the call for the fire came in about 8:15 a.m. He said the fire, which occurred in the second floor, was extinguished in minutes and no one was injured.

He said several departments from neighboring municipalities responded to the fire due to the size of the building. No one was hurt in the fire.
