People who work at the Woodmen Tower were allowed to return to work Thursday after being evacuated due to a carbon monoxide alarm. The old Woodmen of the World building, which is connected to the tower to the north, remained closed Friday.
Both were evacuated about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. MUD officials and the Omaha Fire Department are working to repair a defective furnace part that was emitting carbon monoxide.
No injuries were reported.
