A hazardous materials team, fire crews and an arson bomb squad from the Seattle Police Department are investigating a suspicious package at the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building at 915 2nd Ave in downtown Seattle on Wednesday morning.

The fourth floor of the building was evacuated and people on other floors were told to "shelter in place," a tweet from @SeattleFire said.

The FBI, SPD, Homeland Security and the Seattle Fire Department are investigating.
