BROOKLYN -

The Kings Plaza Mall will reopen Wednesday after police say a fire was intentionally set in its parking garage on Monday.

The mall posted on Twitter that it will resume normal business hours, opening at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

News 12 spotted dozens of people trying to get into the mall Tuesday. Some said they weren't aware of its closure and left disappointed.

Evon Stephens, 23, faces a federal arson charge in connection with the fire. Investigators say he confessed to starting it.

News 12 is told that two levels of the mall's west side parking garage will be open on Wednesday.
