He said this is not the first time the treatment has saved lives in Chico. Police officers in Chico County carry Naloxone, a medicine used to reverse overdoses, which they gave to the surviving victims.

The victims were between the ages of 19 and at least 30, he said.

One person died, and 14 people were taken to the hospital.

One man has died and four are in critical condition following apparent drug overdoses at a house in Chico, the Enterprise-Record newspaper reports.

He said that while it is still too early in the investigation to be sure, the likely cause of death and injuries is from consumption of the potent drug.

One person was declared dead at the house.

"Every indication-talking to medical staff, talking to doctors-everything is consistent with a fentanyl or similar-type overdose", O'Brien told the Sacramento Bee.

'We were waiting, and have been waiting unfortunately, for this to happen in the sense that we knew fentanyl had been moving west, ' O'Brien said. "O'Brien said police performed CPR and administered six doses of naloxone, which is used to treat and reverse the effects of narcotic overdoses". "Certainly there's potential for additional fatalities", he added.

The home with the drug overdoses is located just a block away from Bidwell Jr.

In addition to that, two Chico police officers were taken to the hospital after they said they started to feel sick.

Milwaukee bus drivers have multiple time in the past grabbed headlines for being alert drivers and helping the community. Ivic took the toddler back to her bus, where a passenger gave up her coat to keep the child warm.

The home is now being treated as a "hazmat site", but O'Brien said it is "not a danger to the public".

"We had four fire engines; all of the Butte EMS were on scene as well".

Jesse Alexander Chico Fire Department's Division Chief says, "We had a mass casualty event also known as an mci".

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

He says he is concerned that fentanyl may become a problem in Chico.

"The residence where this incident occurred is being treated as a hazmat site", he said.

O'Brien said that the overdose "could have been a lot worse" without a speedy emergency response.

Mr Standridge added: "It was a large, mass casualty incident for us".

"That should concern us all", he said.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 100 times stronger than morphine.
