A faulty furnace may be to blame for making some Allentown residents sick this morning.

Rescue crews were called to the 700 block of North 12th Street around 5:30 a.m.

In all, five people inside one house and three others in neighboring homes needed medical treatment after being sickened by carbon monoxide fumes.

Six of the victims were taken to St. Luke's Hospital. The other two were treated at the scene.
