Carbon monoxide mystery has one Soundview woman living on edge
Firefighters and the management of a building in Soundview have a carbon monoxide mystery on their hands following complaints about detectors repeatedly going off in one apartment.
Darcel Morgan says she has received three detectors from her building superintendent. She says all three have beeped continuously within the last week. Fire officials say the first two times they were called to the apartment they found the carbon monoxide at a dangerous level. But Morgan says the third time the levels were normal, and when the firefighters left the detector started beeping again.
The buildings management says its investigating where the carbon monoxide is coming from and why the detector continues going off.
Fire officials say detectors go off for various reasons, including low batteries. They say residents should try to keep windows open if detectors dont work so carbon monoxide levels do not get high.
