Authorities say it happened around 7:10 at a duplex in the 100 block of 5th Street South.

After a thorough investigation it was determined the cause was a faulty furnace and poor venting, according to fire officials. 

The Virginia Fire Department is reminding residents to have their heating systems in proper working order. They want to remind people that it is important to have carbon monoxide detectors, and having them in rental properties is state law. 

Seven people including five first responders were treated for carbon monoxide poisoning back on Sunday, December 3.
