FEGS building on Jerome Avenue evacuated after carbon monoxide found
The FEGS building at 3600 Jerome Avenue was evacuated Friday after high levels of carbon monoxide were detected.
According to a Bronx fire chief, a contractor doing some underground digging cut some cables, causing carbon monoxide to seep into the building. Firefighters evacuated the building.
The fire chief says that no one was hurt and the building will remain evacuated until the carbon monoxide levels are back to normal. Officials say Con Edison is also working on the problem.
