Porter Ranch hazmat situation: 2 alleged overdose patients, LAPD parole officer hospitalized

A routine compliance check took a dangerous turn in Porter Ranch late Monday morning, officials said. 

The incident was reported at an apartment complex located near the intersection of Mason Avenue and Rinaldi Street, near the Porter Ranch Town Center. 

Officials with the Los Angeles Police Department said a parole officer was making a compliance check when they came in contact with a substance. The officer then started feeling "woozy," before they were taken to a nearby hospital. 

Two people who allegedly overdosed on fentanyl were also transported to an area hospital. 

The scene is now considered a hazmat situation and the public is being asked to avoid the area. 

No further information was immediately released.
