Atchison Salvation Army evacuated, remains closed
01/04/2019

(KAIR)--A problem with the furnace is being blamed for Friday’s late morning evacuation of the Atchison Salvation Army Office, located at 926 Commercial Street.

According to coordinator Kim Bottorff, she and a co-worker mid-week began to experience headaches.

The use of a carbon monoxide detector Friday morning showed high levels of the potentially fatal gas, leading Bottorff to contact the Atchison Fire Department, which led to the shut-down of the office.

According to Bottorff, the office remained closed Friday, and will remain closed into next week, until the furnace is replaced.

Bottorff, in a Facebook post, said the situation is a reminder of the importance of having a carbon monoxide detector in place.
