A four- or five-foot deep sinkhole looms in the parking lot of Brookfield Mall on Tuesday afternoon, June 3. According to a witness, no one was injured and no vehicle damaged when the hole opened up without warning at shortly after 3 p.m.

Staff from the nearby credit union office quickly cordoned off the area.

As of press-time, cause of the sinkhole had yet to be determined, but recent heavy rains might have been a factor.
