Water sprinkled briefly from the ceiling inside Macy’s Mens and Childrens store at Columbia Center mall today.
According to a report overheard on the police scanner Kennewick Fire Department crews were dispatched about 4 p.m. because a water leak activated a fire alarm.
The water leak was stopped within 30 minutes and, according to Jordan Youngs, marketing manager for the mall, crews are working on the problem.
The store closed briefly but reopened within the hour.
“It’s still too early to know exactly what happened,” Youngs said, adding that he didn’t know if there was any damage.
