The 100 block of South Quarry Street in Ithaca is closed to all traffic after members of the Ithaca Police Department were called around 8 a.m. to check the welfare of a person that was believed to be suicidal.
The person was located alive and was transported to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation. Officers say several noxious substances and chemicals were found inside the apartment. Multiple crime scene service agencies were brought in to investigate and mitigate the interior of the apartment.
At this time, there does not appear to be any risk to public safety.
