This afternoon, the fire department evacuated this building on E. 206th Street in Norwood after nine residents began getting sick. Workers were painting the basement with lead-based paint and the fumes traveled up into the poorly ventilated building, causing residents to get nauseous and vomit. The building has since been opened up and the residents are not believed to be seriously ill.
