BALTIMORE (AP) — Fire officials say six residents of an assisted living apartment complex were taken to a hospital after being exposed to carbon monoxide.

Fire department spokesman Ian Brennan says several residents of the Hamilton Springs Apartments in Northeast Baltimore were evaluated Sunday night. He says six people were taken to a local hospital for treatment of carbon monoxide exposure.
