EASTLAKE, Ohio - A dead squirrel that was stuck in a chimney is being blamed for the carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning deaths of a man and woman in their home in Eastlake, a Cleveland suburb.

The couple was discovered in their home by a relative on Nov. 13. They had been living in Florida and had recently returned to attend a wedding.

The home's thermostat was set to 52 degrees, which could have caused the furnace to start, filling the house with CO gas before they arrived. Police said there were no CO detectors in the home.
