Agricultural spray could be to blame for hazmat situation in Arroyo Grande

Several county agencies are working together to determine if an agricultural spray sent a mother and her child to the hospital this afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to a report of a woman and infant passed out inside a home in the 1000 block of Los Berros in Arroyo Grande.

Meantime crews evacuated the home, fearing something inside made them sick.

Hazmat crews were called to the scene.

They believe a nearby field was sprayed overnight and that spray could be to blame.

"Both patients were breathing, had pulses, they simply were unconscious, on the floor and not responding to any of our stimulations," said Steve Reeder, a batallion chief for Cal Fire.

The incident is still under investigation but no other injuries were reported.
