CO Scare at Charlottesville Store

Sept. 18, 2013

A Charlottesville business was evacuated on Wednesday morning because of a carbon monoxide scare.

Charlottesville firefighters tell CBS19, someone was using a gas-powered concrete saw inside the Hair Cuttery at the Barracks Road Shopping Center.

The exhaust from the saw resulted in high levels of carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas.

Several nearby businesses were evacuated while firefighters ventilated the building.

One person was treated for difficulty breathing, but is expected to be fine.
