    A five-story building was evacuated in the Bronx early Monday after the Fire Department was called in for a report of carbon monoxide.

    The building on Valentine Avenue in the Fordham section was evacuated at about 5 a.m., after officials detected high levels of the potentially deadly gas.

    The FDNY said 12 people were taken to Jacobi Hospital because they were feeling dizzy.
