Two people were sent to hospital late Monday, Jan. 27 after they were exposed to carbon monoxide in their home in the Goulds area of St. John’s.
Both the Goulds Volunteer Fire Department and the St. John’s Regional Fire Department were called to the scene by the homeowners after carbon monoxide detectors were triggered.
When firefighters arrived on scene, they determined that levels were higher than normal and eventually traced the source back to an apparent issue with a wood stove.
Firefighters used fans to ventilate the home and also climbed to the roof near the chimney.
The exposure was not thought to be serious.
