SEATTLE — The Seattle Fire Department advises residents to protect themselves from carbon monoxide poisoning by installing a detector in their home for the colorless, odorless gas.
A family of three was sickened by fumes Thursday and firefighters responded to their 911 call. They found a woman and 10-year-old daughter outside the house but the father was in the basement. All three were given oxygen and transported to a hospital to be checked.
Firefighters discovered the carbon monoxide was coming from a faulty furnace in the basement.
