SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say one woman has died and eight people have been sickened in a hazmat incident Saturday at a Northern California hotel.

KTVU reports Saturday that guests of the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose reported smelling a chemical odor - similar to a rotten egg -and feeling faint, light-headed and short of breath.

San Jose police Officer Gina Tepoorten says authorities are investigating the death as a suicide. Tepoorten said in an email the hazmat incident is related to the woman's suicide.

San Jose Fire Department Capt. Mitch Matlow says the eight people sickened are believed to be hotel employees.
