It’s not terribly often that one reads about building evacuations in Manhattan due to high levels of carbon monoxide, but that’s what happened this past Sunday.

Thirty five people were forced out of eight Upper West Side buildings after firefighters were called to West 76th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park, which is a lovely area with trees, brownstones and townhouses, the New York Post reported Monday. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/flee_gas_on_side_nXQgQ2esxeRVWWa9iwi8dL

The fire department arrived at the scene at 3:30 p.m., and residents were allowed to return to their homes at 8 p.m.

Authorities were still trying to pinpoint the source of the dangerous carbon monoxide.
