Authorities still don't know what caused last night's fire at the T-J Maxx store in Tanglewood Mall.
The fire was contained to merchandise in a storage area on the second floor of the store.
But the blaze spewed smoke into the rest of the store and other parts of the mall.
The mall's marketing manager says T-J Maxx hopes to re-open today, if smoke and water damage can be cleaned up in time.
