The so-called silent killer forced a number of Whitby residents from their home.

Emrgency crews were called to Dewbourne Place around 10:00 p.m. Friday because of a carbon monoxide leak.

Whitby Fire officials say some people were taken to hospital, but the extent of their injuries is not clear.

They also could not confirm how many patients were transported.

The cause of the leak at the home in the Taunton Road and Garden Street area, is still under investigation.

Whitby Fire couldn’t confirm if there were working CO detectors in the home.
