Firefighters from Countryside and the Mundelein Fire Department went to the scene and treated the four occupants, then transported them with nonlife threatening injuries to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

A carbon monoxide leak was discovered in the furnace, authorities said. The home was further evaluated by the North Shore Gas Company.

Officials warn that carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas often found as a result of faulty appliances that utilize natural gas. People are urged to install and regularly check carbon monoxide detectors.
