Compressor breakdown creates scare at HyVee North


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A compressor malfunctioned and broke down in the backroom of HyVee North in Rochester about 9:15 a.m. Monday, sending plumes of steam and oil into the work area.

Rochester firefighters were called but were not needed when it was determined that there was no fire inside, and they turned the scene over to equipment maintenance teams.

HyVee North was not evacuated.  The emergency vehicles were all working in the rear of the store building.
