CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Fire Department, police and bomb squad are investigating a suspicious package discovered by a postal carrier Thursday afternoon.
Cleveland Fire Lt. Larry Gray told NewsChannel5 that a postal worker was delivering mail when he discovered a suspicious looking package in a mailbox on Independence Road in Cleveland.
Gray said that when the postal worker approached the package, it began to smoke.
After the bomb squad removed the package, Gray said the crew found four suspicious bottles and a powder substance in the package. The bottles were 32 ounces with one maybe 64 ounces -- and all with different substances in them. The mobile chemical lab is testing to see what was in the bottles.
The area near Independence and Sykora roads is currently blocked off while crews continue their investigation.
NewsChannel5 has a crew at the scene and will have updates throughout the afternoon.
