CO released from boilers into the mechanical room of a school

Incident Investigation

Carbon monoxide was released from boilers into the mechanical room of a school

April 6, 2020

Gas

Reference Number:

II-1000866-2020 (#16972)



Location: Campbell River

Regulated industry sector: Gas - Natural gas system

Incident overview

Multiple boilers experienced delayed ignition which led to build up of unburnt gas and explosive detonations. Upon investigation, it was found that the gap between the single prong ignitor and the burner very likely exceeded the maximum recommended gap causing the boilers venting to become dislodged and allowing products of combustion to be released into the space.
