Galleria General Manager Gavin Farnam says the cleanup process has been under way for the last few days, "and includes removal of standing water, soot ,debris, damaged materials and merchandise, and isolating less-affected areas for more rapid restoration."
Farnam says Nordstrom's is among the stores that could reopen first. Macy's has said it plans to open before the Thanksgiving weekend. The city of Roseville gets about three million dollars a year in revenues from the Galleria.
Meantime, Alexander Piggee faces five felony counts including aggravated arson. He pleaded "not guilty" in Placer County Superior Court Monday afternoon, but a judge delayed the plea to give Piggee's family time to find him an attorney.
