Columbus HAZMAT crew responds to smelly package at post office

The Hazardous Materials Response Team (HAZMAT) was called out to the post office on County Line Road in Midland Monday afternoon for a suspicious package.

The investigation revealed the box actually contained clams that were being shipped. The clams apparently had thawed over the weekend and started oozing a strange liquid.

Emergency crews blocked off portions of the road, closed off the post office and sent crews inside to secure the building, but it ended up just being a smelly box of seafood.

The Homeland Security Director says there was no threat to the public.
