Shoppers at Eastland Mall were evacuated this afternoon as fire crews responded to a fire at TGI Friday's.

The Evansville Fire Investigator says the fire started in the restaurant's kitchen.

Restaurant staff thought they had put out the fire before fire fighters arrived; turns out, the fire had spread within the wall.

Fortunately, the damage was contained to the back wall area of the kitchen.

No one was injured in the fire.
