I'll bet this reporter got this wrong. Someone tried to tell the press that methylene chloride "reacts" in the blood stream to create carbon monoxide and this is how it came out. Monona

US_MA: CHEMICAL REACTION COULD BE TO BLAME FOR MONDAY'S HAZMAT INCIDENT, http://milton.patch.com/articles/chemical-reaction-could-be-to-blame-for-mondays-hazmat-incident
A HazMat team monitored and vented a house at 57 St. Mary's Road yesterday after a paint remover apparently reacted with carbon monoxide, sending four people to Milton Hospital.
Milton Fire Chief John Grant said a concrete cause of the vapors that overtook one worker and caused another to feel ill on Monday has not been determined, but it appears that a chemical in the Strip-Ease they were using reacted with carbon monoxide.
