Woman dies inside Belmont Ave. hair salon
A woman died inside a hair salon on Belmont Avenue Tuesday afternoon.
Fire officials say the woman collapsed at around 2:30 p.m., setting off panic inside the salon. The fire department responded with a hazmat crew after reports that she had recently returned from West Africa.
The fire chief on scene said the woman's body will remain inside the salon until the medical examiner comes to determine the cause of death.
In a statement sent from the Department of Health, "Before death, this individual showed no symptoms of Ebola. However due to travel history within the 21-day incubation period and an abundance of caution, an Ebola test will be performed on this individual's remains."
Ebola test results are expected early Wednesday morning.
