Employees were evacuated from the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s Pompano Beach district office Monday afternoon because of high levels of carbon monoxide that were detected inside the building, the BSO said.

The building at 100 Southwest 3rd St. is under construction, the agency said.

There were no prisoners in the building's jail facility Monday afternoon, the BSO said. Its employees were evacuated just after 2:30 p.m.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue was investigating.

The BSO said there would be no interruption in dispatch or 911 service in Pompano Beach, and calls were being handled by the Regional Communications Division in the Public Safety Building.
