CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Employees at a southwest Charlotte business park said the building was evacuated Friday after people became sick for a second day in a row, WSOC reports.

Officials said a smell from roof construction caused dozens of people to get sick Thursday at the building on Regency Executive Park Drive off Nations Ford Road.

Paramedics said they evaluated 27 people and took five people to the hospital Friday morning. They’re all expected to be OK.

One employee said she wants a resolution.

“I don’t feel this is a safe environment for people to be working in, with people sick and it’s hard to breathe. It’s hot in there. I don’t feel it’s safe,” the employee, who didn’t want to be identified, said.
