Fire investigators believe a clothes dryer caused a carbon monoxide leak at a North Side nursing home.

Firefighters were called to the 6000-block of North Nina at about 10 a.m. Thursday morning. There were high levels of carbon monoxide detected on the fourth floor.

About 100 residents were moved to the first floor while the leak was investigated and the building was aired out.

No one was injured.
