Deptford Mall reopens after water main break

DEPTFORD, N.J. (WPVI) -- A water main break forced a New Jersey mall to close for several hours on Thursday while crews made repairs.

It happened around 1 p.m. when a water main to one of the fire hydrants outside the Deptford Mall fractured.

In order for the repairs to be made the water had to be turned off, including the fire sprinkler system.

As a precaution the mall was closed for several hours. However, the mall has since reopened.
