At least one person is dead and 12 others were hospitalized after a suspected mass Fentanyl overdose, said police in Chico, California. A total of 12 people were taken to the hospital.

"Unfortunately one male individual was pronounced dead at the scene", O'Brien said, adding that the residence where the overdose occurred is being treated as a hazmat site. "That will be confirmed in the coming days with some more sophisticated testing".

Chico Fire Department Division Chief Jesse Alexander said he saw six people being treated with CPR at the same time and described the incident as the largest mass casualty he's witnessed of the same nature in years.

Two officers who responded to the scene also went to a hospital after they said they felt the effects of a drug similar to fentanyl, KHSL-TV reported.

Officers have obtained a search warrant of the house, which is now being treated as a "hazmat site". O'Brien said it's believed to have been a form of fentanyl that was mixed with another unknown substance.

"'That is changing unfortunately, and now we've had this mass casualty incident... likely to have been cause by fentanyl".

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

The police chief said officers administered CPR and six doses of Naloxone - a treatment for opioid overdoses used as a nasal spray or an injection. O'Brien said a narcotics task force was trying to determine the source of the drugs. A report issued by the Centers for Disease Control in December showed fentanyl was the leading cause of overdose deaths in the USA for 2016, the most recent year numbers have been released.
