Welland Fire officials say family saved by working carbon monoxide alarm

CKTB - NEWS - Carbon Monoxide Alarm

Welland Fire officials are reminding all residents to check their carbon monoxide detectors after an alarm saved a family.

Last week firefighters responded to a 911 call after a carbon monoxide alarm went off in a home.

When they arrived, they determined there was a dangerous level of carbon monoxide in the house.

Officials say the alarm saved the lives of the family since the deadly gas is colourless, odourless, and flavourless.
