Hazmat crews are combing through a house in Blackstone, Massachusetts, where the bodies of three infants were discovered Thursday.

It’s not clear how the children died and authorities say the infants ages and genders have not been determined.

Authorities say the home was infested with vermin and was in such squalor, that it was condemned.

Authorities say four other children were removed from the home last month to protect them from suspected abuse or neglect. The children were a 6-month-old, a 3-year-old, a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old.

Erika Murray, a 31-year-old resident of the home, was arrested on charges related to the living conditions at the house.  It’s not clear how she is related to the children.

She will be arraigned today.
