Five people poisoned by gas barbecue used indoors over the long weekend.


Five Victorians are counting their blessings after receiving treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning.

The group used an outdoor barbecue indoors for four hours before paramedics were called to the scene, late last night.

ESV is reminding Victorians to keep all outdoor gas appliances, outdoors. Without proper ventilation, carbon monoxide is a killer.

Never use an outdoor gas appliance indoors.


Listen to Director of Safety, Paul Fearon, speak with 3AW on the Cambellfield incident and using gas appliances safely.
