In East Hartford, police were investigating the death of a young woman who was found in her apartment on Burnside Avenue on Wednesday before noon, said police Lt. Curt Stoldt.
“It appears that she was using charcoal to heat food in her home,” he said. The woman’s name was not released because police were notifying her family.
In Bloomfield, a 29-year-old woman was found dead at a home on Harding Avenue Tuesday night.
Officials found a generator in the basement of the home, said Bloomfield Capt. Jeff Blatter.
The generator had been running until it ran out of gas and had insufficient ventilation, he said.
“All indications are that the cause of death is carbon-monoxide related,” Blatter said Wednesday afternoon. The fire department found fatal levels of the gas in the house, he said.
The Bloomfield woman’s name also was not released as officials sought to notify her family.
Police identified the 87-year-old woman who died of carbon-monoxide poisoning in Enfield Tuesday as Mary J. Guerriero of O’Hear Avenue.
Guerriero’s husband and son were treated for carbon-monoxide poisoning and released, police said.
The other residents whose deaths have been storm-related are Richard S. Rothschild, 85, of Sharon, who died of carbon-monoxide poisoning; Christopher A. Noyes, 43, who died in an ATV accident involving a low-hanging wire; Alan Sheppard, 32, of Hartford, who died Sunday in a motor vehicle accident on I-91; and Linda Peddle, 51, who was in a weather-related accident along Route 85 in Vernon.
