Hazmat team called to check package in Webster City

WEBSTER CITY — Police, firefighters and the regional hazardous materials team were called Wednesday afternoon to check a suspicious package in Webster City.

The package was received by a Webster City resident. Investigators believe it was related to a scam.

Members of the Region V Hazardous Materials Team “field screened” some liquid that was in the package, according to Lt. Jason Vandi, of the Fort Dodge Fire Department. Vandi said the testing revealed that the liquid was exactly what it was labeled as and that nothing more needed to be done with it. He did not indicate what the liquid was.

Webster City police and firefighters were on scene along with the hazardous materials team.
