A U.S. Social Security Administration building in DeKalb County was evacuated Wednesday morning after a suspicious package was found, officials said.

DeKalb County police and fire crews responded to the office building at 3554 Covington Highway, officials from both agencies confirmed.

The fire department’s hazmat unit was called and the building was evacuated.

Police tell Channel 2’s Lauren Pozen a white powdery substance found on one envelope was not a threat. The other envelope had a coffee stain on it.
