BROWNWOOD — Authorities in Central Texas say three relatives on a hunting trip are believed to have died of carbon monoxide poisoning inside a box trailer that was converted into a cabin.
Brown County Sheriff Vance Hill said propane heaters were used to keep the cabin warm, but the structure didn't have proper ventilation. He said there was no way for the poisonous fumes from the heaters to escape.
Names of the victims, who were found Saturday, haven't been released.
