Portland Fire & Rescue is Responding to Report of a Suspicious Package

Update 3:34 p.m.

Portland Fire & Rescue's HazMat crew from SE Portland's Fire Station 7 responded to the report of a suspicious package containing a white powdery substance at 6420 SW Macadam at 11:31 am.  

Firefighters specially trained in HazMat tested the contents of the package and eventually determined that the material was 97% crystal white powdered caffeine.  Firefighters cleared the scene at approximately 1:15 pm.  Although the material was not determined to be hazardous, it was illegal to send the substance as it was packaged through the mail system.

Portland Fire & Rescue urges citizens, as was done in this case, to isolate any package that is suspicious in nature or contains an unknown substance and call 9-1-1.
