LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The Lafayette Fire Department is reminding homeowners to pay attention to their carbon monoxide detectors.
Fire officials said in the past year they have responded to 12 cases of carbon monoxide being detected within a home.
Officials said these cases occur throughout the year.
Homeowners should check their carbon monoxide detectors regularly because they have a shorter life span than most smoke detectors.
Fire officials said the best areas to place them are outside of bedrooms and near alternative heating units.
