    NBC Boston

    First responders became sick Wednesday at a Massachusetts home where an unattended death took place, according to officials.

    Crews arrived at a home on Anna Street after a 39-year-old man was found unresponsive. He was soon pronounced dead. While they were waiting for the medical examiner to arrive, several first responders became ill.

    Hazardous materials crews went to the house to investigate what sickened the responders.

    Foul play is not suspected in the man's death is not considered suspicious, and and while details remain limited, the DA's office says that the hazmat situation did not cause it. The name of the person who died has not been released.

    It was not immediately clear how many people were sickened, and their conditions were not known.

    Authorities are still working to determine what made the responders sick.
