Carbon Monoxide Scare Prompts Evacuation Of NJ Hotel
CARLSTADT, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey hotel guests were evacuated after high levels of carbon monoxide were detected in the building.
The incident happened Thursday night at a five-story Holiday Inn Express in Carlstadt in Bergen County.
Some people reported feeling ill and one was sent to the hospital as a precaution, CBS 2 reported.
“I felt fine,” hotel guest Rich Corr said. “I heard some of the women had headaches.”
Fire department officials believe the problem may have resulted from a blockage in the hotel’s pool heater, CBS 2 reported.
NJ TRANSIT buses were on stand-by, but eventually guests were allowed back in to the hotel.
