WYOMISSING, Pa. - For the second time in two weeks, the report of carbon monoxide has forced the evacuation of a bank in Berks County.
The Santander Bank at Penn Avenue and Park Road in Wyomissing was cleared shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday, almost an hour after opening its doors to customers.
Firefighters climbed to the building's roof as they searched for the source of the gas, but so far, officials have not yet said what, if anything, they found.
Eastbound traffic on Penn Avenue was detoured around the scene.
Emergency crews were dispatched for a similar call at the bank on August 30. Officials said they then detected elevated levels of carbon monoxide inside the building, but they were unable to determine its source.
Six bank employees were evaluated on the scene that day.
