HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – Authorities today evacuated the mailroom at KTLA in Hollywood after an envelope containing an unknown white powder was found.

The problem was reported at 10:37 a.m. at the station at 5800 W. Sunset Blvd., said Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh.

The powder tested negative for anthrax, according to Borihanh, who said a hazardous-materials team was working to determine whether any other danger was present.

The powder was inside an envelope addressed to KTLA that was opened in the mailroom, KTLA news director Jason Bell said.
