PHOENIX (AP) — A family of four was treated for carbon-monoxide poisoning after the father took a charcoal grill inside their townhome for warmth.

Fire crews found deadly levels of carbon monoxide in the home's second floor Monday night after family members felt sick and called 911.

Firefighters treated the father and one child at the scene, while the mother and another child were taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Fire Capt. Ben Santillan said the home's heat wasn't working.
