SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities in Salt Lake City say white
powder from an envelope spilled onto a clerk's hand inside a mail
room at Temple Square Thursday afternoon.
Hazardous-materials crews decontaminated the mail room, and an FBI agent left with the envelope inside a black plastic bag for testing.
The scare shut down an annex building at Temple Square for more
than an hour.
A spokesman for the Salt Lake City Fire Department says the mail
clerk showed no signs of illness from the spilled powder.
The open envelope was inside a larger envelope addressed to The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
None of the writing was threatening, and the church received no calls or messages related to the package.
