Indianapolis - Shortly after 10:15 Sunday night police and emergency

medical personnel were called to 4202 Spann Ave. on the city's east side

to check out the report of a possible cardiac arrest.



Police found a 46-year-old man and his dog dead inside the house.

They also determined there was a lethal amount of carbon monoxide in the

air inside the residence and had to evacuate.



Firefighters then

detected a very high measurement of CO that came from a generator.



"There

was a reading of 300 parts per million. Very deadly. Anything over

double digits is basically deadly," said an officer on the scene.



Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a byproduct of internal combustion engines

and just about anything that burns.<a href="http://www.wthr.com/Global/story.asp?S=12100422">http://www.wthr.com/Global/story.asp?S=12100422</a>
