Envelope With Unknown Powder Arrives at 'Seattle Times' -- Again

By: For the second day in a row, an envelope containing an unidentified powder has been found at The Seattle Times.

The Seattle Fire Department's hazardous materials team was called to the newspaper Tuesday shortly after noon. Fire Department spokeswoman Dana Vander Houwen says an employee was briefly isolated, but he showed no symptoms and the material in the envelope turned out not to be a hazardous substance.

On Monday, a similar envelope with powder and a threatening letter was found at the newspaper, also causing the hazardous materials team to respond.

FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs says the agency is analyzing the contents of both envelopes. She says a letter also was found in the second envelope, but she does not know its contents.
