Hazmat Investigation at Fort Myer

An Arlington County hazardous materials team has been dispatched to Fort Myer to investigate a white powder that reportedly fell out of a package mailed to the base.

The building that houses the installation’s personnel office has been evacuated while hazmat crews determine whether the substance could be harmful.

Initial reports suggest that the package contains spices mailed from a family member to someone stationed at the base.

Update at 4:00 p.m. — The substance is not harmful. The scene is being cleared.
