BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Kirkwood Mall in Bismarck is coming back to life after a broken water line flooded a large portion of the shopping mall last week.

New carpet has been installed where inch-deep water covered the floor of the north half of the mall a week ago.

Mall spokeswoman Sarah Kotelnicki says a scope was sent into the pipes and discovered the source of the leak about nine feet underground, beneath a Hallmark store.

Kotelnicki says inspectors told the mall the leak could have been caused by weather, age or a number of factors.

The Bismarck Tribune reports the Hallmark store has reopened in a temporary location in the mall. Store manager Sue Roe says Hallmark reopened Sunday, along with most of the rest of the mall.
