Detroit, MI — Authorities say two people found dead in a Detroit home Tuesday night are believed to have died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

The Detroit Fire Department says emergency responders discovered the bodies of a male and a female about 11:35 p.m. Tuesday in a house where a gas-powered generator was found in the kitchen.

WDIV-TV reports that the generator was not running when first responders arrived. Officials suspect it had been operating but ran out of gas.
