THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY
The scene this evening at the Dade County Jail was one of multiple police vehicles, ambulances and fire rescue vehicles lining the block between the back of the courthouse and the front entrance to the jail. Throughout the day multiple inmates and corrections officers have been falling sick at the facility with symptoms of nausea and vomiting.
A source informs us that there is speculation that fentanyl or a analogue fentanyl substance was smuggled into the jail on paper. As authorities began a search for the substance that was making people ill, the fentanyl-infused paper was burned, sending possibly poisonous fumes throughout the jail, making even more people sick.
We will monitor this breaking story and update it as needed.
