Abstract
Carbon monoxide (CO) intoxication leading to illness and death has been reported from a variety of sources, including internal combustion engines, structural fires, industrial operations, and improperly vented heating or cooking appliances. In a recent incident, three cases of CO poisoning in a confined space, including one fatality, were caused by CO migrating through soil after nearby use of explosives.
