WALKER-Authorities released the names of the three men involved in the possible carbon monoxide poisoning incident occurring in a fish house on Leech Lake that left one man dead.

Jared Nels Johnson, 34, Akeley, was located deceased; Michael Tatreau, 50, Solway was transported to St Joseph's Hospital in Park Rapids and then to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, where he was in satisfactory condition Thursday. Two other men- Martin Hartmann, 60, Walker and Scott Hoff, 43, Akeley-were treated at the scene and released.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a medical emergency at 4:37 p.m. Sunday on Walker Bay on Leech Lake. Sheriff deputies and emergency personnel arrived and located four men in a camper trailer that had been converted to a fish house. Upon arrival, Johnson was deceased. The sheriff's office reported the initial investigation indicates propane devices used to heat the structure were not ventilated and led to unsafe levels of carbon monoxide inside the trailer.
