ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Fire rescue crews are treating dozens of patients who fell ill due to strong paint fumes inside a central Florida business.
Office workers were vomiting and dizzy when Orange County Fire Rescue crews arrived Thursday morning. Spokesman John Mulhall said rescuers treated 41 patients on the scene. Two others were taken to the hospital.
Officials said paint fumes from inside the two-story building are likely to blame. A Hazmat team is also investigating.
