Power generators cause CO poisonings in HVPosted: Updated:
Members of a Middle Hope family were treated Tuesday morning for carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a power generator, fire officials say.
Assistant Middle Hope Fire Chief Michael Corizzo says the generator was hooked up inside an attached garage, with only a small door open, causing all the fumes to fill the house.
The family and their dog managed to escape in time.
Last Saturday, a family in Campbell Hall also suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a power generator set up in their basement.
Fire officials urge people to hook up a power generator outdoors, allowing carbon monoxide to escape. They also say a professional should install it.
