FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- One person has died and 15 people were sickened after a meeting in Forest Grove last Friday, and norovirus is the suspected cause, according to a newspaper report.

The Oregonian reported Thursday that 43-year-old Kevin Weeks of McMinnville was among 40 people to attend a meeting at the Oregon Dept. of Forestry. Weeks died Tuesday, but his exact cause of death has not been released.

Fifteen other people who attended the meeting were sickened, the report read.
