Fire department says suspicious packages not hazardous
The Saskatoon Fire Department says the second of two suspicious packages delivered in the city Monday is also not hazardous.
The package contained what police said appeared to be a white, powdery substance and sent emergency crews and a hazardous materials team to the Saskatoon Cancer Centre at about 12:40 p.m.
It was deemed not dangerous after testing, the fire department tweeted hours later.
The call was the second suspicious package report within a few-hour period.
Emergency crews responded to the first call — also involving what police said appeared to be a white, powdery substance — at about 10:30 a.m. The package, since deemed not hazardous, was delivered to a business on the 200 block of Fourth Avenue South.
Police are investigating.
