Two homeless men and a dog were found dead Saturday from carbon monoxide poisoning in a tent, Sacramento police said.

Authorities said they believe the carbon monoxide poisoning was the result of a camp stove set up inside the tent. The tent was located by the Sacramento River just east of the Highway 160 bridge near Northgate Boulevard.

The identities of the two men have not been released, but police said the men were believed to be 44 and 38 years old.
