ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. — A building was evacuated in Arapahoe County on Friday morning after a suspicious package was found, South Metro Fire Rescue said.

The package was delivered to 6300 S. Syracuse Way, about a block from Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre.

Officials were called about 8:45 a.m. and it was determined the package was a mail threat, and the sheriff’s office notified the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

The sheriff’s bomb squad and hazardous materials team investigated and it was determined to not be a threat.

The building will remain closed for the rest of the day Friday as the U.S. Postal Inspection Service continues to investigate, the sheriff’s office said.

Officials did not say what made the package possibly threatening in the first place.
