A couple was found dead in their Cranston home Wednesday morning and investigators suspect carbon monoxide poisoning. The home had no smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.
Cranston firefighters were called to a home on Pontiac Avenue at 8:30 am on a report of two people found unresponsive. It was too late to save the 40-year-old man and 36-year-old woman. Cranston fire marshal Stephen MacIntosh said the home was heated with a portable generator that should have been outside but was installed in the basement. Carbon monoxide levels in the home, he said, were high.
