Tillicum Centre was evacuated late Tuesday morning after a pipe burst causing a flood.
The Coast Capital Savings location across from Winners is under construction and on Dec. 3, a sprinkler pipe was hit by construction crews and water poured out, affecting both levels of the mall.

Northern Reflections, Coast Capital Savings, Bentley and Cresta Dental were affected by the flood but the rest of the mall has reopened to the public, noted Elyse Norgaard Kituri, general manager of Anthem Properties which operates Tillicum Centre.
