Carbon Monoxide Poisoning a Concern for Fall and Winter Hunters and Fisherman
By Mark Askelson (10/9/17)
Naytahwaush, MN -- Summer is long gone and families have abandoned their summer lake homes and now look to hunting shacks and fish houses as a different form of retreat in the fall and winter months. But many times those spaces are small and may have outdated heating sources. Twin Lake Fire Chief Ed Snetsinger says those small, confined cabins and houses often times can have high risks of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Another big concern for Snetsinger and his Twin Lakes Fire Department is arson. Snetsinger adds that arson puts his fire fighters in great danger and if you see something, say something.
