The resident, a woman, was taken to the hospital, where she later died.

Investigators responded and started a death investigation.

Due to unknown substances found in the home, a regional hazmat team responded. Nothing was found during the search.

Based on new information obtained on June 5, another search warrant was obtained for the home.
