ARCADIA, WI (WTAQ) - Thirteen people were taken to a hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning from a home near Arcadia in western Wisconsin.

Trempealeau County authorities responded to a house where seven adults and five children fell ill late Sunday afternoon.

A responding officer also succumbed, and was treated at a local hospital and later released.

WQOW-TV in Eau Claire said there was no word on the conditions of the other 12 people. Officials said a charcoal grill was apparently being used to heat the home.

The incident remains under investigation.
