Sextant Place, Pawleys Island / Joel Allen

Preliminary tests done on a powdery substance found in a package picked up from the Pawleys Island post office found nothing hazardous.

Midway Fire Rescue's Hazardous Materials team was called to a home on Sextant Drive in Pawleys Island Thursday morning. The woman who lives there brought a package home from the post office and when she opened it, she discovered a powdery substance inside that got on her and her dog.

Crews have cleared the scene and no injuries have been reported.
