At least five people have died at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief confirmed Wednesday morning.
 
The deaths may be due to the loss of the home's air-conditioning after Hurricane Irma struck Sunday, Hollywood Police Chief Tomas Sanchez said at a press conference Wednesday. The causes of death are still being investigated.
 
"We are conducting a criminal investigation (and) not ruling anything out at this time," Sanchez said.
 
Three died at the nursing home, and two others died after being transported to Memorial Regional Hospital, Sharief said.
