The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says three painters have been found dead inside a Rancho Cucamonga home.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman says deputies went to the home shortly before 3 p.m. Friday after a woman reported finding the men she hired to paint her house unresponsive.

Rancho Cucamonga Fire Chief James Curatalo tells the San Bernardino Sun that the men were found in different rooms of the home. He says they were hired to paint the interior and were using a paint compressor inside the residence.

Bachman says there were no signs of trauma on the men and investigators do not suspect foul play.
