Upon notification by an employee at the facility, tribal officials contacted the Skiatook Fire Department to do an inspection, which resulted in the detection of higher-than-normal carbon monoxide levels. Following the initial inspection, tribal officials immediately evacuated the facility. Inspectors are working at the facility to determine the cause of the problem, the release said.
