Sinkhole Opens in Mall Parking Lot

By: BNEWS Weekly

Just before 5pm on Thursday, February 20th a water main break in the Burlington Mall parking lot caused a sinkhole to open near Sears. A car was teetering on the brink of the sinkhole when Burlington Police and other personnel arrived on scene and moved the car to safety. 


The Mall was closed for the rest of the day due to lack of water. The water main has been fixed and the sinkhole filled in. 


There were no reports of any injuries and, to the relief of many, the Burlington Mall is open for business as usual.
