LYNDHURST, N.J. -- Six residents of a Lyndhurst apartment complex refused medical attention after being affected by elevated carbon monoxide levels overnight, authorities said.

Firefighters began evacuating The Station at Lyndhurst Apartments on Chubb Avenue around 11:15 p.m. Thursday, residents said.

They were able to return to their homes around 2:30 a.m., after the complex was examined and ventilated, Deputy Fire Commissioner Paul Haggerty said.

Local authorities and building management were planning to resume their search for the cause while a group of firefighters remained on scene throughout the night to conduct routine air samples, Haggerty told Daily Voice.

A Bergen County HazMat Unit joined Lyndhurst police, firefighters, EMS and emergency management professionals at the scene, as did a representative from the Bergen County EMS Task Force.

Rutherford firefighters provided an engine and North Arlington a ladder.
