Central Fire Station clock working again


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A historic clock in downtown Rochester is back up and running.

The clock was originally built in 1898 as part of the old Central Fire Station, but for years it hasn't been working right.

In a ceremony Tuesday morning, it was announced the Historic Preservation Society will make sure it keeps on ticking.

The clock's 1,200 pound bell does still work, but it is only rung on special occasions.
