BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Fire officials say eight people were taken to area hospitals for evaluation for possible carbon monoxide exposure at a Pigtown rowhome Wednesday.

Officials with the Baltimore Firefighters Union Local 734 say the people were evacuated from a three-story house in the 800-block of Washington Blvd. at about 5 p.m.

Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright confirmed that the home was evacuated as a precaution for a possible carbon monoxide leak, but he said none of the victims suffered any serious or life-threatening illness.
