Emergency responders rushed to a home in Chico, Calif. after receiving a 911 call about a mass overdose at around 9 a.m., Chico Police Chief Michael O'Brien said at a press conference last night.

Four of those taken to the hospital are in critical condition, according to authorities.

People who once had legal prescriptions to intensely powerful pain killing narcotics like Oxycontin turned to street dope like heroin when they were kicked off their scripts with no option to withdraw medically. Pacific time on Saturday at a home in Chico, said Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien.

Two police officers who had been exposed to the fentanyl were also treated at the hospital and released in "good condition", O'Brien said.

They were treated and later released. One man was pronounced dead at the scene, and 12 adults were hospitalized.

Paramedics injected at least six of them with Naloxone. Steve Standridge, chief of Chico's fire department, says cardiopulmonary resuscitation was performed on six individuals at the scene and a total of 12 were taken to the hospital.

Chico officers began carrying the antidote only previous year.

The mass overdose took place at one house in the city about 90 minutes north of Sacramento.

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

"Remember, the amount of carfentanil - these substances are extremely risky - and it takes just a very minute amount to cause life-saving conditions", O'Brien said.

The Drug Enforcement Administration depicts the flow of illicit opioids from China into the United States in a recent report.

Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid pain reliever, is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.

"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". "That is changing, unfortunately, and now we've had this mass casualty incident".

"That should concern us all", he said.

That's a life-saving antidote that reverses opioid overdoses.
