2 dead of CO poisoning in Md.
Fire officials say two men have died of carbon monoxide poisoning inside a home in Pikesville.
Eleven people, including three police officers, were sickened by the odorless, colorless gas and were rushed to a trauma center.
Baltimore County fire department spokeswoman Elise Armacost says a neighbor called 911 around 8:40 a.m. and reported that someone might be dead inside the house. Police responded, and three officers were overcome when they entered the home.
Two men were pronounced dead at the scene. Eight other people, including two children, were sickened inside the home.
Firefighters measured levels of carbon monoxide at 400 parts per million inside the home. That's more than 11 times the level at which carbon monoxide detectors begin to sound
