A suspicious package found at a Google building this afternoon (Nov. 27) has been deemed safe, according to the Mountain View Police Department.
Police and firefighters in Mountain View responded to the report of a suspicious package, described as a "substance in an envelope," shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday at a Google building in the 2600 block of Casey Avenue.
Seventy employees were evacuated from the building "out of an abundance of caution," Mountain View police said in a social media post.
A hazardous materials team from the fire department responded and determined the substance was not dangerous.
"The building is clear and safe," police said.
Fire department spokesman Robert Maitland said employees were evacuated for a little over an hour and were allowed to return to the building shortly after 4 p.m.
