The sheriff's office is investigating the incident, but early reports were that carbon monoxide could have been a factor and that Narcan, an opioid overdose reversal drug, was used on scene.

It was not immediately known if emergency responders thought an overdose had occurred or if Narcan was administered as a precaution. There are no negative impacts if a person not overdosing on an opioid is given Narcan or its generic version Naloxone.

More information is expected to be released by the sheriff's office Tuesday morning.
