Portland Fire & Rescue Responds to Two Workers Stricken by Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

At 10:25 am on December 2, 2011, Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a medical call for a man who was reported to be unconscious at a house located at 4734 S.E. 48th. When firefighters from Portland's Woodstock Fire Station 25 arrived on scene, they were met by two workers feeling ill and complaining of being dizzy. The workers said they were in the house with a gasoline operated concrete cutting saw that was being used in a remodeling project in an interior bathroom.

Firefighters observed the scene and noticed that only a small window was open. They began to test the patients for carbon monoxide poisoning. Firefighters found high levels of carbon monoxide present in the house. Portland paramedic firefighters started high flows of oxygen to the patients and helped transport them to Providence Portland Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, charcoal, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, kerosene and methane) burn incompletely. Products and equipment powered by internal combustion engines such as portable generators, cars, lawn mowers, and power washers also produce carbon monoxide. Fumes are dangerous for anyone and can be deadly. Some people are more susceptible to the effects of carbon monoxide including unborn babies, infants, older adults, people who smoke, and people who have chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems.

Portland Fire & Rescue encourages citizens to install at least one CO alarm with an audible warning signal outside each individual bedroom. The only way to know if you are being exposed to carbon monoxide is by using a detector. Visit for additional information on carbon monoxide.

IT WORK 100%....I just got my Marriage fixed, I contacted a real spell caster that helped me change my husband’s heart to love and want me again, and he really did and now we are very happy together. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..
