OGDEN -- An office in the James V. Hansen Federal Building downtown has been evacuated due to an unknown substance found there.
A section of street near the building at 324 25th St. has been closed off and workers in the office where the substance was found have been evacuated, said Police Lt. Mike Ashment. He did not have information about the type of job the workers performed.
A male worker in the building said the incident happened on the sixth floor that houses the IRS. A white powdery substance was found in a package, said the worker. An email was sent to workers giving them the option of leaving and then and alarm went off in the building and people evacuated, he said.
The incident is the second of its kind in the area in a week. On Friday, a white powdery substance was found at an IRS building in Farr West. The substance turned out to be harmless.
Today's incident is being investigated by the FBI.
