On April 22, firefighters responded to a carbon monoxide alarm in a Seneca Road house. Residents had self evacuated and were not showing any signs of carbon monoxide exposure. Con Edison was notified and determined the cause of the carbon monoxide was related to prolonged use, of approximately four hours, of multiple stovetop gas burners. In addition, it was determined that the stove’s exhaust fan was not being used while at least two of the burners were operating with a high flame. This exacerbated the situation.

On April 22, a Sage Terrace resident reported a problem with her stove and an indoor odor of natural gas. Firefighters disconnected the stove’s electrical and gas connections. They advised the resident to call a technician for service.

Police and firefighters isolated the scene and blocked the roadway while Con Edison addressed the wires.

On April 24, a carbon monoxide alarm sounded at a Sycamore Road house. The source of the carbon monoxide was a detached flue pipe to a gas-fueled hot water heater. Con Edison was called to respond while firefighters ventilated the house using positive pressure.
