Three people have died in a suspected carbon monoxide poisoning incident at a caravan park in Camborne
The victims are reported to be an elderly couple and their daughter.
Firefighters from Camborne and a specialist advisor were called out to Tremarle Home Park, North Roskear, Camborne at 1pm today.
Insp David Eldridge of Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Shortly before 1pm this afternoon, we were called to a caravan park near Camborne in Cornwall, where a helper had been unable to get a reply from an elderly couple who lived in the caravan.
"We were able to see that there was a figure sat in a chair but they were unresponsive to knocks at the door.
"Cornwall Fire and Rescue were called. They forced entry into the property and found that the three occupants were all dead."
An investigation has been launched into what caused the deaths, however the incident is not thought to be suspicious.
