carbon monoxide warning Five Hospitalized After Carbon Monoxide Leak

A carbon monoxide leak has sent five people to the hospital — with two of them in critical condition. The leak forced the evacuation of a public housing complex in the 26


00 block of Stevens Avenue south in Minneapolis. More than 130 people were evaluated for carbon monoxide poisoning on Metro Transit busses. And five other people, including an infant, were rushed to Hennepin County Medical Center. Battalion Chief Don Leedham says a faulty flue on a boiler is suspected in the leak. Most of the residents have since been allowed to return to their units.
