Harrisonburg, Va. (WHSV) Wednesday night, neighbors near Reservoir Street called the fire department after smelling an unusual amount of gas.
As it turns out, the gas was carbon monoxide.
A woman who lives at the home said the building was evacuated. She said she waited in her car with her pets until she was allowed to re-enter.
"We could've went to sleep and not woken up tonight. That's what could've happened. My cats my dog and my daughter more importantly and myself could've went to sleep and not woken up. Especially since we have EDS," said Theresa Fox, who lives at the home.
Fox said she was told to open the window to ventilate her home.
