An east Salt Lake City condominium complex remained evacuated early Wednesday after firefighters found dangerous levels of carbon monoxide at the scene the night before.

Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay said no injuries were reported and efforts continued overnight by Salt Lake City Building Services officials to locate the source of what he described as "unhealthy high levels of carbon monoxide" detected at 159 E., 800 South, about 7:20 p.m. Tuesday.

"[Firefighters]evacuated all 14 units in the complex. A total of 17 occupants were displaced," Asay said.

An alarm system initially detected the gas, after which residents called 911.

The displaced condo dwellers reportedly were able to find temporary shelter with friends and relatives.
