Three employees from a Marana McDonald’s who were taken to the hospital Sunday to be treated for heat-related symptoms after working in a kitchen with no air conditioning have been released.

The air conditioner units have been repaired and the fast-food restaurant at 8349 N. Cortaro Road, near Interstate 10, is open. A total of 11 workers suffered from heat-related symptoms while at work at the restaurant.

The high temperature Sunday was 103 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The restaurant manager told firefighters that the kitchen area had been without air conditioning for a week because of mechanical issues, Capt. Adam Goldberg, a Northwest Fire District spokesman.
