Investigators say four rescue workers who went into the house also got light-headed.All of the victims were taken to the hospital for observation.
After several hours on scene, firefighters figured out what caused the carbon monoxide scare.They have a coal furnace downstairs. He turned it on recently for his homeowner to get the dampness out. The carbon monoxide backed-up inside the house and from there it caused it,” Asst. Chief Brian Smigielski.
