Harmless powder found at Cincy VA Hospital

Posted: Updated:

A suspicious powder is found at the Cincinnati VA Hospital.

Cincinnati police and fire crews were called to the scene around 9:30 Tuesday morning after someone reported finding a suspicious powder in a tissue box in a first floor office.

Five people were exposed to the substance. Three of those people were decontaminated and one person checked in to the hospital because they had an asthma attack.

After an investigation, officials determined that the substance was harmless but it may be weeks before they release exactly what it was.

One entrance to the hospital was closed for about two hours, otherwise it was business as usual.
