Huntley Fire Protection District (IL) shared:

During this cold weather do not warm up your car in your garage. Warming your car up in your garage will allow for dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and could be fatal. Many homeowners are mistaken that by having the door open it allows for proper ventilation, however, they do not take in account for wind and the fumes trapped in the garage after leaving and closing the door. Many times coming home to CO detector activation in their home. NEVER WARM YOUR CAR IN YOUR GARAGE!!!!!
