    • Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.

    • Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.

    Two fire departments worked quickly Thursday to extricate a mechanic trapped between two tractor-trailer tires in Plymouth Township, officials said. 

    Livonia Deputy Chief Michael Kelly said they responded to the scene on Pilot Drive around 6 p.m. after the Plymouth Township Fire Department called for assistance. 

    Kelly said the man trapped was approximately 35 years old and was servicing the tractor-trailer's refrigeration unit when another person attempted to move the truck — unaware that the man was there.

    The firefighters worked for about 40 minutes to extricate the man, who was treated at an area hospital, Kelly said. 

    According to a Facebook post on the Livonia Professional Firefighters IAFF Local No. 1164 page, the victim had only minor injuries. 

    Livonia firefighters helped to perform manual removal of the outside tire on the front axle of the semi, then cut the interior tire and utilized a K12 cutting tool to remove the victim, the post added.
