Just turn off the propane at the tank. No worries.

There are a few other people on this site along with me, who cringe when somebody mentions what the OP was asking. We are doing/did a job where we have seen the results of things going bad. Even running buddy heaters. Get a ceramic heater/electric heater of some kind and use that, PLEASE. Don't take a chance.

In the news today.

Members of the Nampa Fire Department discovered the deaths Thursday afternoon after receiving a report of a possible accidental death. When they arrived at the scene, they discovered "high levels of carbon monoxide in the residence and deemed it was not safe to enter. Once the Fire Department ventilated the residence, officers were able to conduct an investigation," according to the news release.
PLEASE everyone, if you are using a unit that burns ANY combustible fuel do so in the open.

Even using a few electric heaters are dangerous.Been alot of them catching on fire too.Depends what kind of garage heater you have .
Brother installs gas heaters in shops,rec. Rooms etc.No body is dying.I have one in my attached garage and never a issue
Dam you can live in your house and have the same thing happen.
That's why they make Carbon monoxide detectors.

I'll bet those gas heaters in rec rooms etc are vented to the outside. Better to be safe than sorry. I have 2 co detectors in my house. They are mandatory by law here but I don't stake my life on them.
