• High levels of carbon monoxide found at hotel after fire


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Ramada Inn on Woodlawn Avenue was evacuated after the fire alarm went off Wednesday morning.

    When firefighters arrived, they discovered a construction crew was operating some power tools, and the exhaust set off the fire alarm.

    Firefighters said they found high levels of carbon monoxide in the building, so they evacuated and vented the hotel.
