HAMMONTON, N.J. (AP) - Five workers at a southern New Jersey farm were hospitalized Sunday after being overcome by carbon monoxide fumes.

Hammonton police say the five—whose names were not released— were found outside a greenhouse on the farm around 8:20 a.m. They were taken to Virtua Berlin Hospital for treatment and were expected to fully recover.

The leak apparently was caused by a faulty heater or pipe in the greenhouse on the Pine Road property, but officials say the investigation is ongoing.
