CHICO (CBS SF) — Police were blaming a mass overdose in Chico on Fentanyl after one person died and 14 others were hospitalized Saturday.

Emergency crews responded with more than a dozen fire trucks around 9:15 a.m. to a home in North Chico.

First responders performed CPR and administered Naloxone, an opiate antidote, to revive several of the survivors.

Police say the victims likely overdosed on Fentanyl.

“We knew Fentanyl had been moving West it really has been in other parts of the country where they’re really seeing the greatest impacts of this particular drug,” said Chico Police Chief Michael O’Brien. “That is changing unfortunately. and now we’ve have this MCI (mass casualty incident)…that concerns us all.”

Two officers were also transported to the hospital after being exposed to the drug.

They were treated and later released.

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

Sonoma Sanitation Pipeline Spews 2 Million Gallons Of Sewage Into Slough

SONOMA COUNTY (CBS SF) – A valve malfunction led to the release Saturday morning of approximately 2 million gallons of untreated wastewater from a Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District pipeline south of the unincorporated community of Schellville in Sonoma County, the district said.

The valve, which failed to fully close, was leaking wastewater for about 24 hours, district officials said Saturday. The sewage went directly into the slough.

The problem valve was finally isolated, and the leakage was stopped at 10:45 a.m., the district said. District maintenance crews were working Saturday to repair the valve.

The State Office of Emergency Services, San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board and California Department of Fish and Wildlife were notified. Environmental specialists were also dispatched to the leak site, and did not observe any dead or distressed fish or other species Saturday.

The affected pipeline is part of a complex network of pipelines that collect wastewater from about 17,000 households in the Sonoma Valley. The wastewater is treated at a plant near the city of Sonoma.
