Carbon monoxide deaths spur safety effort by city
PROVIDENCE -- After three people were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning in a South Providence house, city officials tomorrow will deliver a safety message and information on where to get free detectors for smoke and carbon monoxide.
The 10:30 a.m. news conference will be at the Providence Public Safety Complex, and Mayor David N. Cicilline, Fire Chief George S. Farrell and police representatives will deliver the message.
The mayor will also announce a new effort to educate Providence families on carbon monoxide poisoning dangers.
The bodies of the family were found in the 325 Blackstone St., house two days ago. Officials have said they think an improperly installed basement furnace for the heating system led to the deaths.
