(UNDATED) - Now that cold weather is here and heaters are being used, carbon monoxide is a concern.

The "silent killer" claims over 1,300 people per year in the country.

Indianapolis Fire Department Assistant Fire Marshal Fred Pervine carbon monoxide problems are a major concern that don't likely get reported.
