GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Two people are being treated in Greensboro after carbon monoxide leaked from a generator used after a tornado caused them to lose power, according to Dwayne Church with the Greensboro Fire Department.

The incident happened at a home in the 1800 block of Muncey Lane. They have been taken to Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital.
