Deadly Indoor Heating! Never Grill Indoors!

By Firefighter Charles Foy.Sr

Each year, many people die from carbon monoxide poisoning due to indoor charcoal grill use. Charcoal grills give off a tremendous amount of deadly carbon monoxide gas, as well as other toxic fumes.

Carbon Monoxide has no odor. Carbon Monoxide has no color. You cannot tell if you are in an area with high concentrations of Carbon Monoxide, unless there is a Carbon Monoxide Detector (similar to a smoke detector) installed in that area. Carbon Monoxide detectors are an inexpensive way to help you guard against Carbon Monoxide, which can also be generated by faulty heating systems, cars running in attached garages, and any gasoline engine such as a generator.

Grill Best Practices
- Never use a grill indoors
- Never use a grill in a garage
- Never use a grill underneath an elevated outdoor deck
- Always keep a grill far away from the side of a house, shed, garage, vehicle, tree or shrubbery.

It can be tempting to heat a home when the power is out, but this is often a deadly mistake. Please read this story from Delaware Online/Wilmington News Journal about a family that was lucky and survived:
