CARMEL, Ind. –  An office complex in Carmel has been evacuated after at least 14 people fell ill due to an unusual odor.

The office complex is located at 10401 North Meridian Street, and it was evacuated after several people started feeling ill around 10:30 a.m.

Paramedics and the fire department arrived at the scene to evaluate patients and try to determine the cause of the abrupt illnesses.

According to the Carmel Fire Department PIO, at least 14 people are being transported from the scene by ambulance.
