Firefighters warn of danger from generators

Firefighters are warning people today about the dangers of generators.

At least 135 people in Connecticut have suffered CO poisoning after the storm including a death.

Firefighters say you should have a licensed electrician hook a generator up.

They say location is important; you should set up outside, away from vents and with the exhaust blowing away from the house.
