Leighta Laitinen, spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, said the incident caused officials to realize there is no carbon monoxide detector system installed at the jail. She said sheriff’s office staff will meet Monday to discuss why there are no alarms and the steps needed to get them.
“We had a carbon monoxide scare at the jail (Saturday) morning,” Laitinen said. “We had to send one inmate to the hospital, but he returned in a few hours.”
