First responders rushed to a home located in the 6100 block of 185th Terrace North on Thursday evening.

Rescue crews said the house didn't have power, and the people inside were running a generator outside the home.

A garage door was open, which allowed exhaust from the generator to get inside the home.

Fire rescue says the carbon monoxide levels were four times the amount where people start to feel sick.

The woman who died was identified as 66-year-old Elaine Kotake.

The conditions of the three people that are hospitalized have not been released.

The sheriff's office said no foul play is suspected.
