RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Renton police say the home where two men were found dead with an elevated carbon monoxide level earlier had the car running in a closed garage.

Renton police say relatives found the two men, ages 66 and 28, Monday afternoon when they went to the home. Police say the 66-year-old lived at the home and the other man was visiting. They say the older man’s dog also was found dead.

Renton fire officials are investigating to determine if carbon monoxide poisoning was the cause of death. Investigators say the man routinely ran the car in the closed garage to charge the battery. Police say it appears the deaths were an accident.

The victims’ names have not been released.
