MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The office of Alabama's attorney general was evacuated Wednesday morning after employees discovered an unknown white powder inside an envelope.

The U.S. Postal Service determined the substance to be harmless, WSFA News in Montgomery reported.

Six staff members for Attorney General Luther Strange were exposed to the powder, according to the Montgomery Fire Department. Emergency crews set up a decontamination area outside the building.

Strange's office is located on Washington Avenue in downtown Montgomery, blocks from the Alabama state capitol.
