Carbon Monoxide Warning
8:00am 3rd March 2013
Pirate FM has learnt Cornwall has one of the highest numbers of deaths from carbon monoxide in the UK.
There have been more than twenty over the last eight years.
Four more people have lost their lives in St Ives and Camborne over the last couple of weeks.
The fire service says there have been dozens more near misses.
Rachel Richardson from Wendron sells stoves: "Absolutely horrendous, you know it's silent and deadly. People go walking around for days on end with a slight headache, unaware. But it is building up and building up and then they just go to sleep and don't wake up.
"People will sweep a chimney and will push all the debris up so you've got an inch hole at the top and they think their chimney is clean. But, it's not. It's causing a lot of damage and build-up of gases."
