SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - HazMat teams responded to a fire station in North Park after a suspicious package was found outside the station, according to a San Diego Fire-Rescue official.
Fire crews found the package by Station 14's front door around 3:20 p.m. Sunday when they returned from a call.
Fire officials told 10News the package was a taped-up cardboard box with writing on it that made it appear dangerous. Some of the words were misspelled.
The hazmat and bomb personnel set up a perimeter around the station, blocking off 32nd Street and Lincoln Avenue by about a block in each direction.
The bomb squad x-rayed the package, determined that it was not dangerous, and reopened the street around 5:45 p.m.
The package was filled with aluminum flux and trash, according to a tweet from San Diego Fire-Rescue.
At about 3p on Sunday someone left this box at SDFD North Park station on 32nd St. The bomb team was called to ID the contents - aluminum flux and some trash. Thx to @SanDiegoPD for assistance. Street is open and residents will be back home shortly. #teamwork pic.twitter.com/xmclaDEzJ3
