PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a 66-year-old woman has been found dead in her rat-infested home in Peoria.

Police say the house is considered a health hazard and the city has hired a company to professionally remove the rats and rodents.

The woman has not yet been identified. Police say her death is not considered to be suspicious.

Authorities conducted a welfare check at the home last Thursday after neighbors complained about a bad smell and said rats were seen going in and out of the house.

Officers reported seeing severe hoarding conditions along with rodents and the woman's badly decomposed body.
