Concord Mill Mall was evacuated and is now closed after a small fire broke out, according to officials. 

Concord firefighters were called to the scene around 4:23 p.m. due to a fire near the Bath and Body Works Store. 

The fire was put out quickly by sprinklers, but the fire department is working to control the smoke, which is getting into the ventilation system, and has shut down the mall because of it. Exterior doors will remain open.

No injuries were reported. The cause of fire is still under investigation.   

Drivers and shoppers are asked to avoid the area at this time as police and fire officials work to control the scene.
