Heater poisons family

A family of five is being treated in hospital for suspected carbon monoxide poisoning at their Cabramatta unit.

Emergency crews evacuated two adults and three children from their home on Longfield St about 2am. 

It's believed the family had been using a charcoal burner for hours to warm the unit before they reported feeling unwell.

Fire and Rescue NSW retrieved the burner as the family was taken to Liverpool Hospital for treatment.
