The Olathe Fire Department and Johnson County Med-Act crews responded to the Noodles & Company restaurant located at 15208 West 119th Street shortly after 11 a.m. Monday morning.

Two employees were transported from the scene by Johnson County Med-Act ambulances and a third drove himself to an area hospital following Carbon Monoxide exposure according to an Olathe Fire Department spokesperson. Five others were treated on the scene.

None of the injuries are considered life threatening according to the Olathe Police Department.

The neighboring businesses were allowed to reopen for business just after 12:10 p.m.. The Noodles & Company remained closed until repairs could be made.
