1 dead from carbon monoxide
A Washington fire spokesman says one man is dead and two women were sickened by carbon monoxide in their district home.
Fire spokesman Pete Piringer says a woman called Sunday to say she was having trouble breathing and when crews arrived they found high levels of carbon dioxide in the home on Warder St. NW.
Piringer says a woman found upstairs was unconscious and a man who was found in the basement was unconscious pronounced dead at the home. The fire spokesman said a malfunctioning furnace was the likely cause and high levels of carbon monoxide were not found in neighboring homes.
