YAKIMA, Wa - The Yakima Fire Department says carbon monoxide poisoning can be difficult to detect until it's too late because if there is no smoke, a smoke detector won't pick it up.
If you want to protect yourself from carbon monoxide poisoning, they recommend buying a carbon monoxide detector first and foremost. It costs between $20 and $50 dollars.
They also say to check household appliances and chimney flues once a year.
And recognize the symptoms. You suddenly start feeling badly. You feel fatigued. You start experiencing muscle pain.
