Carbon Monoxide is created by incomplete burning of solid, liquid, and/or gaseous fuels.
Home appliances that are fueled with either natural gas, liquified petroleum (LP gas), oil, kerosene, coal, or wood may produce Carbon Monoxide (CO).
Burning charcoal as in a bbq grill produces CO.
Running cars produce CO.
Carbon Monoxide is very dangerous and can kill you before you even know it is there.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, every year over 200 people in the United States die from Carbon Monoxide that is produced by home fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, ranges, water heaters, and room heaters.
Others die from CO produced while burning charcoal inside a home, garage, vehicle or tent. Still others die from CO produced by cars that are left running in attached garages.
Several thousand people go to hospital emergency rooms for treatment for CO poisoning. What you do not know about carbon monoxide can kill you.
