An improvised explosive device (IED) goes off at Eagle Ridge Mall. Lake Wales fire responded to and alarm call that turned into a structure fire call at around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

When fire crews arrived on scene they saw smoke coming from a corridor located next to the mall entrance of JCPenney. The fire department located an IED that had been detonated in the corridor. Fire crews also found another backpack in the same corridor with another possible IED device in it.

Improvised explosive device goes off at Eagle Ridge Mall
Interesting that it was a service corridor, those are typically not accessible by the general public, meaning they’re usually secured, accessible to mall personnel only... Or at least that’s how it used to be many moons ago...

Another reason I try to stay away from shopping malls... On the occasions when I do go, it’s armed, of course, and it’s in and out as quickly as possible...
