Police were sent at about noon Monday to the fire station at 2625 Park Lake Drive after a suspicious package was brought there after it was discovered at a nearby business, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Firefighters assigned to Station 2 secured the package until investigators could arrive.
The package was sent to a nearby business but it did not include any threats, Swanton said.
Fire department officials inspected the package and determined it did not pose a threat.
