LONE TREE, Colo. — The sprinkler system extinguished a small fire inside Park Meadows Mall on Thursday afternoon, South Metro Fire Rescue said.
The fire was contained to a storage room in a back hall, officials said.
The food court was closed and evacuated while crews made sure everything was safe. The rest of the mall remained open.
Firefighters were leaving the scene a little after 3 p.m.
The food court was likely to reopen soon after that.
