Emergency workers checked out dozens of children at a Raleigh daycare Thursday morning after a report they were sickened by carbon monoxide gas.

Firefighters were called to the Sanderford Road Learning Center just after 9 a.m. They said it appeared a stove was left on - causing gas to build up all night.

The daycare was expected to reopen later Thursday morning.
