ROSE CREEK, MN — Fire crews in southern Minnesota had to respond to a different type of emergency today.

Firefighters were busy pumping out water from the storm sewers in Rose Creek and Adams.

This morning, we caught up with the Rose Creek Fire Chief Fred Ulven, who was out pumping water from the storm sewer after yesterday’s rain.

“We kept up pretty well, nobody’s been flooded,” Ulven said. “It’s better to be on a residential street than somebody’s basement. So, hopefully, we can keep everybody dry.”

Crews started pumping water last night to take pressure off the storm sewer and pumps.
