CHESTERFIELD, Mo. — The Target in Chesterfield that closed because of a fire inside the store has reopened.

The store has been closed since the Saturday after Thanksgiving. On that busy shopping day, someone started a fire in the home section of the store, leading to an evacuation and damage in the store.

Target officials held an official reopening of the location Sunday morning. First responders with the Monarch Fire Protection District and Chesterfield Police Department were thanked at a ribbon cutting ceremony for their efforts the day the fire started.
