GLENDALE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Costco was cleared out this Black Friday, and we are not referring to merchandise.

Authorities say 12 people needed treatment after a Freon leak in the refrigerated section of a store in Glendale.

The leak forced the evacuation. Three people were taken to a hospital for respiratory problems and the rest were treated at the scene.

Fire officials say the leak was caused by a serviceman working on a refrigerator unit.
