RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Everyone is being allowed back inside a Richmond business after a carbon monoxide issue earlier Thursday.

Police responded to 1300 Mactavish Ave around 8:20 a.m. for a carbon monoxide alarm. Fire crews arrived and asked everyone to evacuate the building.

Officials gave the all clear upon finding the building had a safe level of carbon monoxide and allowed everyone to return to the building once they were able to determine a water heater on the second floor was the cause of the leak.

No one was sent to the hospital, though they were all checked out at the scene.
