Beware of the Dangers of Carbon Monoxide. 

The recent deaths of a Greenville, South Carolina couple reminds us of the dangers of carbon monoxide. As WYFF reported carbon monoxide entered the home as a result of a vehicle running in the garage. Elevated levels of carbon monoxide were found in the garage and the first level of the home.

On January 1, 2011 the South Carolina Building Codes Council did adopt the 2012 edition of the International Residential and International Building Code that requires that new one and two family dwellings and townhouses not more than 3 stories, and Group R (Hotels/overnight stay locations) have carbon monoxide detectors.
