Mishawaka Firefighters Battle Blaze At Toscana Park Building


A Mishawaka shopping center, still under construction, was damaged by fire Wednesday night.

The two-alarm blaze broke out around nine at a building in the new Toscana Park Shopping Center.

That's behind the new Heritage Square development at Gumwood and State Road 23.

Firefighters battled heavy flames when they pulled-up.

It was a fire that appeared to be concentrated on the roof of the building. Mike Talbott, Mishawaka Fire Department Battalion Chief says, "It took about 15-20 minutes to get it under control. We had to use out aerial trucks to get it under control but once we got 'em up we got it under control pretty quick."

Mishawaka fire investigators are searching for what caused the fire.

Toscana Park is being developed into office space, villas and retail shopping.
