CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR ALERTS FAMILY TO FUMES

A carbon monoxide detector alerted a Durham Avenue family early today that fumes were creating a hazardous situation in their home, authorities said.

When the alarm first sounded Monday night, members of the Darryl Webb family of 54 Durham opened windows, fire officials said.

At 7:25 a.m. today, the family called firefighters when the alarm began to sound again. Firefighters determined that either a faulty chimney or boiler was spewing carbon monoxide inside the house, authorities said.

Darryl Webb, no age listed, was taken to the Deaconess Center for treatment, fire officials said.
