Carbon monoxide scare at rehab facility
Hyannis firefighters responded to The Pavilion on Route 28 for elevated levels of carbon monoxide.
HYANNIS - Hyannis firefighters were called to The Pavilion at 876 Falmouth Road (Route 28) around 9 p.m. Sunday after elevated levels of carbon monoxide were discovered in the rehabilitation facility. Alarms apparently went off alerting to the problem. The good news is no patients had to be transported from the scene. Officials believe a problem with the building's heating system was to blame. Keyspan gas workers and the facility's heating serviceman were called to make repairs. As the weather starts to cool officials remind us its a good time to have your furnace cleaned and inspected and make sure you have a working CO detector. (Photos by Frank Paparo).
First on CWN: Guns found in MV stop in Hyannis
A county investigation officer processes two guns recovered on a traffic stop in Hyannis Sunday.
HYANNIS - Police will tell you there's no such thing as a "routine" traffic stop. Barnstable Police got more than they bargained for when they made a stop on Barnstable Road by the KFC/Taco Bell around 4 p.m. Sunday.
The two men in the car sped away and the police chased them a short distance, stopping the white Toyota Corolla at Barnstable Road and Charles Street.
Reports say a passenger ran from the car and is reportedly still at large but the driver, 21-year-old Terrell Mair of Irvine, CA, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm (2 counts).
When police conducted a search of the vehicle they discovered two loaded guns on the floor. Only CWN cameras were on scene after it was declared safe and caught the arrest and aftermath as a County Investigation Officer (CIO) was called to the scene for ID work, prints and photos.
Muir was transported to the Barnstable Police Station and the car was impounded. Muir was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning in Barnstable District Court. (Photos by Frank Paparo).
