According to local reports, an unnamed man died while another 12 were rushed to hospital, with four of them in a critical condition.

An adult male was pronounced dead at the scene while 12 others - between ages 19 and 30 - were transported to Enloe Medical Center.

A dozen people were taken out of the house Saturday morning and brought to hospitals, the Enterprise-Record reported. "That will be confirmed in the coming days with some more sophisticated testing".

"Upon arrival, Chico police officers found multiple individuals in what appeared to be life-threatening, overdose conditions", Chico Police Chief Michael O'Brien told reporters.

I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred. It was the latest in a history of inflammatory comments by King, and one that has him in hot water with his party.

Four of the victims were in critical condition, said Mike O'Brien, a police captain in Chico, California.

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. Responding officers performed CPR at the scene and provided six victims with doses of naloxone, medicine that can treat narcotic overdoses in emergency situations.

The two police officers were treated and released, officials say they are in good health. Both received treatment at a hospital and were later released, police said. Authorities suspect the overdoses were caused by ingestion of the risky drug and a separate substance that is yet to be determined.

Officers have obtained a search warrant of the house, which is now being treated as a "hazmat site".

Police say the victims likely overdosed on Fentanyl.

Police officers in Chico County carry Naloxone, a medicine used to reverse overdoses, which they gave to the surviving victims. "That is changing unfortunately. and now we've have this MCI (mass casualty incident)...that concerns us all".

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

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