Businesses are slowly starting to open Tuesday at Midtown Plaza after the downtown shopping centre was evacuated on Monday.
The Saskatoon Fire Department said a reported fire forced the evacuation of the mall on Monday afternoon.
Reports of smoke and a possible electrical fire in the parkade were received by the fire department just before 6 p.m.
Crews said they found a large breaker had failed in the electrical room, which was arcing and producing a large amount of smoke.
All electrical sources were secured off by firefighters and building maintenance personnel, officials said.
Firefighters then assisted mall security with evacuating and closing the building, the fire department said.
Most of the mall remained closed Tuesday morning. The only areas that were open to the public were the office towers and The Bay.
A statement from the mall said doors have re-opened, with some stores set to open at noon.
Midtown expects regular shopping hours to return on Wednesday.
The cause of the incident is under investigation, but the fire department said it is not considered suspicious.
