Hazmat identifies powdery substance in Wynlakes mailbox

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Residents in the Wynlakes community are free to return to their homes after a Hazmat crew identified the white, powdery substance found in someone's mailbox Wednesday afternoon.

The Montgomery Fire Department and a Hazmat crew were called to a home on Wynlakes Boulevard to investigate the substance.

Samples of the powder indicated it was nothing more than harmless baking soda.

Officials blocked off the roadway as a precaution while investigating the report, but it has since reopened.

There is no word on how the common household substance ended up in a mailbox.
