Police and firefighters examined the suspicious letter and determined there was no powder or toxins. No one was hurt, and there is no danger to the public.
The building remained operational while first responders were on the scene. No evacuations took place.
The situation was determined to be safe, and first responders left Blumenthal’s office by 12:40 p.m. Friday.
