New York, NY — An apartment building on Manhattan’s east side was evacuated overnight due to a carbon monoxide leak in the basement, authorities said.
The FDNY said the call came in around 12:45 a.m. for the incident at a residential building on East 55th Street, between First and Second avenues.
The entire seven-story building was evacuated, fire officials said.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported, according to the FDNY.
