WASHINGTON, N.C. (WNCT)- Three people, including two minors are recovering at Vidant Beaufort Hospital after carbon monoxide was discovered in the home.

Beaufort Emergency Management Director John Pack said crews responded to North End Mobile Home Park off of U.S. 264 around 9:00 Tuesday morning. When they arrived, the home tested positive for carbon monoxide.

A mother and her two children were taken to the hospital via ambulance.
