Baltimore schools get CO detectors
Baltimore school officials say they will put carbon monoxide detectors in 35 schools within a week and all of the system's approximately 200 schools in the next month. The decision comes after two carbon monoxide leaks at one city school in a week.
The first 35 detectors will be placed at schools with the same type of equipment identified as the source of Tuesday's leak at Dickey Hill Elementary/Middle School. Cooking equipment in the school's cafeteria has been identified as the source of the leaks.
City officials say the battery-powered detectors cost $15 each wholesale.
Six students complained of illness and 40 other people may have been exposed to carbon monoxide at Dickey Hill on Tuesday.
