DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An investigation is continuing after police say two children overdosed at a home in Dayton Thursday morning.

Around 9:30 am, Dayton Police responded to reports of an overdose at Dayton Fire Station 17, located at 4118 W. Third St. Upon arrival, two children were located and taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital to be treated.

Detectives with the Special Victims Units and Narcotics Bureau responded, and an investigation began.

Hazmat crews were called out to clean the house.

The children’s mother was arrested for drug possession and child endangering, while her boyfriend was arrested for temporary protection order violation.
