Fire in Mishawaka Shopping Center


A new shopping center was heavily damaged following a fire in Mishawaka.

The two-alarm blaze broke out at a building Wednesday night in the new Toscana Park, which is located behind the new Heritage Square development at Gumwood and State Road 23.

The shopping center was scheduled to open later this winter, but the fire caused $100,000 in damage.

Mishawaka firefighters say the blaze originated in the roof where most of the damage was contained.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

A heater malfunction appears to have caused the fire.

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