Fire service warn of carbon monoxide dangers

Cornwall Fire Service is warning about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning after three people died at their caravan home in Camborne at the weekend.

John and Audrey Cook, their daughter Maureen and their pet dog, died within minutes - after inhaling fumes from a faulty heater.

Fire officers say having gas appliances checked every year and fitting a carbon monoxide alarm could save lives.
