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.
