AURORA, Colo. — A shelter-in-place order has been lifted in Aurora after police arrested two people Wednesday morning, the Denver Police Department told Denver7.

DPD, with assistance from Aurora PD, served a search warrant at a house near E. Colorado Avenue and S. Olathe Street. The two people taken into custody were arrested on unrelated warrants.

"We are also treating the response as a possible haz-mat situation, which is contained only to this particular house and is not deemed to be a risk to neighboring homes," DPD Director of Communications Doug Schepman told Denver7.

Investigators are expected to be in the area for several more hours, according to Shepman.
