Associated Press

BOSTON — A terminal at Boston's Logan International Airport was briefly evacuated due to high levels of carbon monoxide believed to be caused by a snow-melting machine.

Massachusetts State Police say Terminal C was evacuated Sunday evening.

Officials say they believe the high carbon monoxide levels were caused by a snow-melting machine outside of the building.

State police say the terminal was "vented" and returned to normal operations a short time later.
