Carbon Monoxide

CO is found in combustion fumes, such as those produced by small gasoline engines, stoves, generators, lanterns, and gas ranges, or by burning charcoal and wood. Never use these items in a small enclosed area such as a home or garage as CO from these sources can build up in enclosed spaces. As a result, people and animals in these spaces can be poisoned and can die from breathing CO.
