DES MOINES, Iowa  --  Parts of Merle Hay Mall are closed on Saturday due to a water main break.

A security guard discovered the break early Saturday morning. The water damaged portions of the shopping area including Flix Brewhouse. The mall's four department stores will remain open, and Merle Hay Mall CEO Elizabeth Holland says the rest of the mall will reopen on Sunday.

Crews are still working to clean up the area.
