The second incident happened around 1:30 p.m., when authorities were called for five people who were unresponsive, the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
Authorities found five men in their early 20s in a trailer, all unresponsive. Medical staff began administrating CPR, the sheriff’s office said.
Three of the men were pronounced dead on scene.
Two were brought to a hospital in critical condition for acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
