DETROIT (WXYZ) – Hazardous materials crews and other fire department teams descended on Detroit’s McNamara Federal Building Monday to investigate a white powder sent to U.S. Senator Carl Levin.

The office that received an envelope containing the powder was evacuated and Detroit Fire Department officials say they cordoned off the room where the letter was opened.

Detroit fire crews were still at the scene running tests at about 2 p.m.

Senator Levin’s office is located in Suite 1860 at the Federal Building which is located at 477 Michigan Avenue in Detroit.
