White powder found at Essex census form processing office

April 11, 2010

A fire official says one person was transported to a hospital after a white powder was discovered at an Essex office that processes census forms. Baltimore County Fire Department Lt. John Milby said crews spent about 3 1/2 hours on scene and collected some of the material for testing. He said there were "some reports of some skin irritation." Milby said officials got a 911 call at 11 o'clock but it was not clear what symptoms the person taken to the hospital had.
