MILWAUKEE -- 11 people were hospitalized by a carbon monoxide leak at Playmakers, a shoe store on the 5000 block of W. Fond du Lac Ave. Milwaukee firefighters responded to the scene to find a one contractor fainted.

Contractors were remodeling the building using a propane power tool. Investigators believe that tool caused the carbon monoxide leak.

Fire officials say carbon monoxide were high when they arrived, but have lowered the levels to zero.
