Montgomery County firefighters evacuated the Forum condominium building, a 17-story residential building, at 11801 Rockville Pike, shortly after 7 a.m. on June 3 because of high carbon monoxide levels on several floors.

Fire Spokesperson Pete Piringer said hazardous materials crews have identified a malfunctioning water heater as the source of the carbon monoxide.

He said the building was ventilated and there have been no injuries.
