OGDEN, Utah ” More than 30 people were hospitalized with carbon monoxide poisoning after an Ogden family used a barbecue cooker inside a garage during a party.
Ogden Fire Battalion Chief Corey Barton says nearly 50 people were in the garage Tuesday night when several of them started having breathing problems. No one lost consciousness.
Barton says the incident could have been avoided with the use of a carbon monoxide detector.
