Crews respond to car fire at Circle Centre Mall

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Crews responded to a car fire at a Circle Centre Mall parking garage Monday morning.

According to the Indianapolis Fire Department, crews were dispatched to the fourth floor of the World of Wonders parking garage in the 100 block of South Illinois Street just before 9:30 a.m.

After arriving on scene, two vehicles – a 2005 tan Kia Van and a black Dodge Charger – were found on fire.

IFD says its believed the fire started in the Kia and then spread to the Charger.

The fire was under control just before 9:45 a.m.

As a result of fighting the fire, the Noodles and Company restaurant located on the first level of the mall and the Dick’s Last Resort, both sustained flooding.

IFD believes a weakening or small break in a standalone pipe allowed water to flow in the establishments after firefighting operations got underway.

The fire remains under investigation.
