According to the city fire department, the two-alarm scene is located inside a residential high-rise building at 60 Murray Street near West Broadway in TriBeCa.

The NYPD Bomb Squad responded and quickly determined that the fumes didn't come from the box - which sources said contained salads - but from a defective boiler and a leaking pipe in the basement of the building.

According to Leonard, all 32 injuries are minor, the pipe has been capped, and the carbon monoxide levels in the building are decreasing.

Witnesses described a woman passing out after a worker opened a box in the basement, which caused suspicions of a possible connection. That early concern prompted the NYPD bomb squad and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to respond to the scene.

Small crowds clumped at police lines, tourists snapped photos and workers and residents tried to find out how to get where they were going.

Authorities began lifting the lines before noon. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
