NAPA (BCN)— The California Department of Social Services this afternoon said an 8-month-old boy was found dead Wednesday at a childcare center on Oxford St., Department of Social Services spokesman David Weston said.
   
The Department of Social Services was notified today of the death, and is investigating it with Napa County authorities, Weston said.
   
Napa police today said the boy was found unconscious and unresponsive at 3 p.m. Wednesday at a licensed family day care home in Napa. There were no obvious signs of trauma, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.
   
The facility was licensed on Oct. 27, 2014 as a small family childcare home for no more than eight children, Weston said.
   
There have been no known recent complaints about the facility, Weston said.
   
An unannounced inspection of the facility on July 15 found no deficiencies of regulations during the random, annual visit, according to a Facility Evaluation Report. Two adults and three minors lived in the home at the time of the inspection, according to the report.
