WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - An electrical fire in an escalator forced a section of The Westchester mall to close in White Plains on Sunday afternoon.

Fire crews were dispatched to the mall on Westchester Avenue at approximately 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, following reports of the fire coming from the escalator.

Smoke could be seen coming from the top of the escalator bank on the third floor, prompting alarms to sound and forcing some nearby stores to close early as firefighters cleared the scene.

No injuries were reported and the small fire was quickly extinguished.
