NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The all-clear has been given after a suspicious powder prompted a Hazmat response at the Tennessee Board of Parole.

The incident was reported Tuesday afternoon on the 13th floor of Parkway Towers on James Robertson Parkway.

The response was prompted after a receptionist opened a letter that contained a suspicious white powder. The 13th floor was evacuated while officials tested the powder.

Nashville Fire officials confirmed the substance was not a threat to the public. Employees were eventually allowed back into the building.
