Lincoln Fire and Rescue were called to a central Lincoln group home after more than dozen people complained of feeling ill.  LFR Battalion Chief Eric Jones said residents had symptoms from exposure to carbon monoxide.  Jones said about 25 residents had just returned from Joyo Theater in Havelock.  He said fire crews were sent to both places.  

All 25 people were checked out and treated at the scene.  Jones said 8 residents had no symptoms of CO poisoning.  One person was transported to the hospital to be checked out. 

Black Hills Energy said the theater's furnace was not operating correctly.  They said the building was ventilated and the furnace was shut down.  The owners were notified to make repairs.
