EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Eau Claire fire crews responded to a call Wednesday morning, at the Central Energy Plant at Mayo Clinic Health System on Chestnut Street.

One of three chiller motors in the building caught fire, and one person who was in the building at the time was evacuated safely.

Officials with Mayo also say no patients were affected at any buildings on the campus.

"We never lost any operations in the facility and are currently operational. We have a lot of redundancies in our Central Energy Plant. So, we maintain consistent operations throughout," said Jason Craig, VP of Operations.

Eau Claire Fire has not yet determined the cause for the engine fire.
