A fire at a north Lincoln strip mall resulted in $200,000 to $250,000 in damage to a business, officials said.

Firefighters went to the strip mall near 66th and Holdrege Streets shortly after 11:30 a.m. Saturday in response to a report of black smoke coming from the building.

The fire started in the business in the north part of the strip mall, according to a press release distributed Monday by the Lincoln Fire Department. Smoke traveled through attic space to the other businesses in the mall, prompting them to be evacuated.

Other businesses in the strip mall sustained smoke damage.
