When the paramedics arrived at the warehouse, they evaluated her. Shortly after entering the warehouse, the chemical sensors on the paramedics' belts began to sound a warning for carbon monoxide. Plant workers were notified by the paramedics that everyone had to leave the warehouse and go outside. The worker suffered from asphyxia but was not hospitalized.
