Lubbock Home Evacuated Due to Carbon Monoxide

The Lubbock Fire Department evacuated a central Lubbock home overnight, after detecting dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.

At about 2:30 a.m., a carbon monoxide detector at 4104 62nd Drive woke the residents, and alerted them of the danger. They dialed 911.

Fire fighters tested the air inside the home, and found dangerous levels of the odorless gas. Fortunately, no one was injured.
