GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Mont. (AP) - The St. Mary Visitor Center at Glacier National Park has reopened after being closed due to water damage from the center’s sprinkler system.

A furnace malfunction early Thursday morning caused the sprinkler system to activate, causing water damage to the building, furnishings and some interior utilities.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1urmwU3 ) that contractors and park employees worked through the day and most of the night so that the center could reopen on Friday.

Some employee offices have been relocated to the nearby park administrative area. Some office equipment, furniture and computers will need to be replaced, along with some drywall and flooring.

Some of the Glacier National Park Conservancy’s sales materials were also damaged.
