Firecrews are reminding households in Cumbria that carbon monoxide detectors save lives after a potential tragedy was averted last month.
Firefighters attended a report of a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm sounding at a property in Marks Avenue, Carlisle on Friday August 23.
The boiler was found to be leaking, which without the alarm could have gone undetected.
45 year old Chris Bainbridge was found dead at the Quiet Site CaravanPark in Wattermillock on the banks of Ullswater on Monday afternoon.
His wife Jane Bainbridge, who's 43, was taken to the Cumberland Hospital in Carlisle and is in a serious condition.
