Pidgeon said he visited Coddington’s Florist on Wednesday morning to follow up, and the business was open. Another worker had refused treatment Tuesday, he said, and complete names of the others involved weren’t available Thursday.
While firefighters were at the scene wearing masks and checking the CO levels, a man affiliated with the business was trying to fix the situation and was wearing a paper dusk mask, city fire officials said. He was uncooperative and wanted authorities to leave, they said.
BPS Chairwoman Margery Merzig said if the owner doesn’t take action “in a timely fashion,” the board can reconvene to consider further measures.
Merzig said the board doesn’t want to close down the business but the situation was an emergency and raised concerns about people being in the building.
No one answered telephone calls to numbers at the florist shop and to Kroll at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
