Carbon monoxide, or CO, is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death. Carbon monoxide is found in combustion fumes produced by cars and trucks, small gasoline engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, gas ranges, gas dryers, gas water heaters, and heating systems. Carbon monoxide from these sources can build up in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces, and people and animals in these spaces can be poisoned.
