CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Four emergency personnel were among six people treated Wednesday night for carbon monoxide poisoning at a home on South Second Street, according to Emergency Services Chief Allen Baldwin.
The carbon monoxide was traced to a backed up flue pipe from a gas heater, officials said.
Two firefighters, an emergency medical technician and a paramedic were treated and released from Chambersburg Hospital at about 2 a.m., Baldwin said Thursday. The owner of the home, Mary E. Hull, and a visitor were taken to the hospital and the visitor was later flown to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa.
Hull, of 136 S. Second St., was admitted for a day's observation, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Baldwin did not release the name of the woman flown to Geisinger, and no condition report was available from the hospital.
The incident at Hull's home began at 8:30 p.m. with a 911 call for a person suffering seizures, but it was almost an hour later when more firefighters and ambulances were called to the scene.
