A woman and several dogs were found dead in a Bethesda home late Tuesday, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.
Officials responded just before midnight Tuesday for a welfare check on the woman who lived at a home in the 9400 block of Corsica Drive, according to Fire Spokesman Asst. Chief Scott Graham.
When they arrived, they found an adult female dead in the home, Graham said. The cause of death wasn't yet known.
Several dogs were also found in the home and there were possible hoarding conditions, Graham said. Responders discovered live and dead animals, some caged, and removed them from the home with the help of animal control officials, Graham said.
Montgomery County police are investigating the incident as an unattended death, Graham said.
