Last Wednesday (Jan. 6) we went to Rochelle to run errands and eat dinner. When we returned, our smoke/carbon monoxide alarms were going so loud that it was frightening. Jim put new batteries in and that was not the problem. The alarms kept telling us to leave the house. Never having had a problem with them, we did not leave immediately.
We finally called our daughter, Deb Howard, and she contacted the fire department. They told her to get us out of the house immediately. She did and followed the fire trucks out. They came immediately and were so nice and did such a good job of cleaning the carbon monoxide out and then turning different things back on until they found out which one it was. It was a gas stove that we had in the basement. We had used it for years without any problems. Our power was off and we had had it on to cook breakfast. We will have to dispose of it correctly.
