Carbon Monoxide Sickens Vallejo Family

VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - A Vallejo family is expected to make a full recovery after suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Vallejo Fire Department officials say two women aged 43 and 61 and a 3-year-old boy were taken to Sutter Solano Medical Center after authorities found elevated levels of carbon monoxide in a local home Thursday night.

Authorities say a faulty wall heater appears to be responsible for the carbon monoxide.

Firefighters say they arrived at the house in response to a report that the 61-year-old woman was feeling ill. They say they found the 43-year-old woman, the 3-year-old's mother, incapacitated in a bedroom.

A Novato family also survived a close call with carbon monoxide poisoning Thursday after they felt sick and went to a hospital.
