Sometimes- the radios of CSW reach WAY out- hundreds of miles when atmospherics are right...
At 6:28 a.m. Sunday morning - we received the report of "smoke in the Columbia Mall" at 23000 Bernadette on Columbia fire deaprtment frequencies.
Within 10 minutes- at least one additional fire unit was also called to that scene.
I only heard most units return to their stations around 8 a.m.- but The COLUMBIA (MO) DAILY TRIBUNE reports that there was "a small fire" in the "TRYPS children’s theater in the Target wing."
Damage was estimated at "$2500" by CFD officials- but a spokesperson with the children's threater said damage will run "much higher."
