Niagara Gazette — Tuesday's incident lasted about three hours
The base remained on lockdown until around 6 p.m., when a team of FBI agents finally cleared the facility to re-open. No one was injured in the incident.
The cause for concern then was a package that had Arabic writing on it. At that time, four people who came in contact with the package were segregated and put through a decontamination process.
At least one of those people was later transported to the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo for a medical evaluation.
FBI investigators found no hazardous materials inside the package. Military sources said the package contained documents written in both English and Arab.
