Fire at Marion Hy-Vee causes evacuations
MARION, Iowa (KCRG) - A fire at the HyVee in Marion caused the grocery store to have to evacuate Monday afternoon.
At approximately 1:00 p.m., Marion Fire was called to the 3600 block of Highway 151 for a report of a fire.
Marion Fire Chief Tom Fagan said the fire started in a refrigerator unit and was out by the time they got there. However, there was quite a bit of smoke throughout the building which forced people to evacuate.
After approximately an hour the building was properly ventilated and staff were allowed back inside. The store was then allowed to re-open for business another hour after that.
No one was injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
