KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A man and his sister are dead from apparent carbon monoxide poisoning in Kansas City, Kan., authorities said.

Authorities were called about 5:30 p.m. to a home in the 5100 block of Kimball on an unspecified medical call, a KCK Fire Department spokesman said.

Emergency crews found the 58-year-old man and his 69-year-old sister dead in the house in separate rooms.
