Chico overdose: One dead and 12 in hospital after 'mass drug overdose'

1 dead, 4 in critical condition at mass overdose in California house

O'Brien says, "It's not a danger to the public at this time, but i do want to emphasize that but certainly in the processing of that scene we need to do that very carefully, because it definitely is a hazmat site at this point".

The overdose was reported to authorities around at 9:12 a.m. Saturday morning, January 12, CNN affiliate KHSL-TV reported.

"It was a large mass casualty incident for us", Chico Fire Department Chief Steve Standridge told the Mercury News.

A "mass overdose" in a California home Saturday morning left one person dead and another 12 hospitalized after police say the victims may have ingested fentanyl, a powerful opioid.

Police say they found more than a dozen suspected overdose victims in a Chico, California, home Saturday. The victims-aged between 19 and 30-all seemed to know each other, according to police.

One man has died and four are in critical condition following apparent drug overdoses at a house in Chico, the Enterprise-Record newspaper reports. Responding officers performed CPR at the scene and provided six victims with doses of naloxone, medicine that can treat narcotic overdoses in emergency situations. They were also treated at the hospital, the chief said, adding they were released and are in good condition. The drug has been blamed for a wave of overdose deaths across the nation.

Suspended Russell, Cubs agree at $3.4M, $200000 raise
That's around $290,000 more than MLB Trade Rumors had projected and is roughly $2.7 million more than he earned last season. As first reported by Gordon Wittenmyer , the Cubs have settled with Kyle Schwarber on a salary of $3.39 million for 2019.

"Every indication is that this mass overdose incident was caused from the ingestion of some form of fentanyl in combination with another substance".

The drugs are "extraordinarily unsafe", O'Brien noted, saying that even small amounts can be life-threatening, according to the Bee.

According to The Bee, O'Brien says Chico officers began carrying naloxone (the only anti-dote to a fentanyl overdose) in 2018 but, until recently, it has been used to reverse heroin overdoses.

Chico Police Chief Michael O'Brien got a 911 call from inside the home in the 1100 block of Santana Court, pictured above.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-to-100 times stronger than morphine, according to the US
Drug Enforcement Administration.

More than 71,500 Americans have died of a drug overdose in 2017, according to data released the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
