High snow accumulation and drifting was found to block furnace vents on Farley Road. On January 24, 2016, the Oldwick Fire Company responded to a high Carbon Monoxide alarm. Elevated levels were found within the home.
The cause was found to be blockage of the home high efficiency furnace. The vent exited the home on the exterior side wall rather than historically through a roof chimney. As a general rule, these vents should be cleared of snow within a three foot radius.
