A two-alarm fire last night at the Macy's department store in the Marley Station Mall near Harundale was confined to a second-floor storage room, Anne Arundel County fire officials said.
County Fire Division Chief C. Gary Rogers said that the blaze was discovered about 9:20 p.m. and that firefighters quickly evacuated store employees and the relatively few remaining customers. The fire was brought under control about an hour later.
Chief Rogers said sprinklers had helped to confine the fire to the storage area. No injuries were reported.
Investigators were trying to determine the cause. Fire officials estimated the damage at $100,000.
