Rochester firefighters say six people will survive thanks to their carbon monoxide detector.

Firefighters say they were called to a home on Avenue A for a carbon monoxide alert around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday. News10NBC is told six people made it out of the duplex safely. They were transported to Rochester General Hospital for evaluation. Officials say the leak came from a furnace. Firefighters say the situation could have been a lot worse if the home did not have a working carbon monoxide detector.
