Five Hospitalised By BBQ Fumes

23 July 2012, 07:25

Four adults and a child have had to go to hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning after a barbeque was brought into a house in Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to a house on St Andrews Lane just after 11.15am on Sunday 22 July 2012.

The five casualties were given oxygen before being taken to hospital by ambulance.  Firefighters used a fan to clear the house of the poisonous fumes.

This all comes just over a month after six members of a family had to go to hospital after the dying embers of a barbeque were brought into the conservatory of a home in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.

All six suffered carbon monoxide poisoning.  One member of the family - a man in his 50s - collapsed.

Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas given off by things like barbeques and heating boilers.  It's so deadly because it's colourless and odourless.
