The Timberlake Fire Protection District said it got a call for help at 7:54 p.m. to a camper on North Good Hope Road. When they got there they found a man and a woman in their mid-20s. Fire rescue crews said the CO levels in the camper were “extremely high.”

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman was taken to Kootenai Health with life-threatening injuries.
