The emergency call came in just after 11 p.m. on Thursday. Aurora Fire Rescue tweeted “Carbon Monoxide levels were checked in the apartment and found to be elevated.” After that, the building was evacuated.

The cause of the gas leak was determined to be from a malfunctioning boiler. The CO reading was determined to be over 1,900 parts per million.

Approximately 30 people were displaced overnight, and the American Red Cross helped nearly a dozen of them with emergency shelter.
