Firefighters called Ann Arbor High School about a carbon monoxide incident
ANN ARBOR, MI – Firefighters prevented a potentially fatal carbon monoxide incident at a high school this morning, officials said.
At around 2:47 a.m. on November 6, six Ann Arbor Fire Department fire engines were dispatched to Pioneer High School over a reported carbon monoxide incident.
Several overnight trailers were parked at the school for the upcoming University of Michigan football game, officials said, with generators running in close proximity to each other and to the trailers.
Pioneer High School, near Michigan Stadium, is a popular hangout for soccer games. The Wolverines were due to play the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Using air monitors, firefighters checked the trailers for carbon monoxide and moved the generators a safe distance from the trailers, officials said.
No injuries were reported in the incident, which could have been fatal if left unchecked, officials said.
A similar event resulted in the deaths of three men and the hospitalization of two more men at the Faster Horses Festival on July 17, Ann Arbor fire officials said in a statement posted on Facebook.
