State law for CO detectors to start Friday

ST. PAUL, MN (FOX 47) -- Starting Friday, state law is requiring that single-family homes in Minnesota have at least one carbon monoxide detector.

Property owners will be responsible for providing all houses with at last one CO detector within 10 feet of each bedroom.

The Department of Public Safety says the alarms will go off when levels of the gas rise high enough to be a health concern.

The department notes that traditional smoke alarms will not detect carbon monoxide.
