Cherry Hill Strip Mall Deli Goes Up in Flames

Fire broke out at a South Jersey strip mall early Tuesday growing to two alarms before being brought under control.

The blaze heavily damaged the Short Hills Deli & Restaurant in the Short Hills Plaza along Evesham Road in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

The blaze broke out outside the strip mall, which also features a cleaners and boutique, around 2:45 a.m. then spread inside the deli by the time firefighters arrived, said Cherry Hill Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Chris Callan.

Luckily no one was hurt and firefighters got the blaze knocked down after about 30 minutes.

The deli suffered visible damage including busted out windows and smoke damage. No word yet on the total amount of damage.

The strip mall is the same place where a fire struck about nine years ago, said firefighters.
