New York. The FDNY said on Twitter that there were high carbon monoxide levels throughout the evacuated building

At least 34 people are injured and a 12-story high-rise has been evacuated after a fire erupted in TriBeCa, causing high levels of carbon monoxide in the area Tuesday morning, according to the fire department.

Almost three dozen people were being treated for exposure to carbon monoxide due to a defective boiler in the basement of a 12-story TriBeCa building Tuesday morning, the FDNY said.

The Fire Department said the blaze started in the basement of 60 Murray around 8:30 a.m. It's unclear if it is connected with the fire.

Federal Bureau of Investigation and bomb squad officials have responded to the scene. The meters measure up to 1,000 parts per million, enough to "render you unconscious very, very quickly", Leonard said.

There were high carbon monoxide readings in the basement and other parts of the building, the FDNY said. The injured were being treated at area hospitals, but officials said the injuries were all relatively minor. Tourists snapped photos and workers and residents tried to find out how to get where they were going.
