LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) -Border Patrol agents are showing that elevated temperatures indoors pose a threat to people.

On Friday, agents shut down a stash house in central Laredo where they found 25 undocumented immigrants living inside.

The two-bedroom apartment was at a temperature of 94 degrees during the discovery.

Not only do these individuals face heat-related injuries but the temperatures are optimal for virus growth.

All of the individuals were taken into custody.
