HALFWAY - A suspicious package containing an unidentified brown liquid forced crews to don hazmats suits in a parking lot outside Lenox Distribution Center late Thursday.
According to Ed Ernst, deputy chief of Volunteer Fire Department of Halfway, the crews were notified of the situation at about 8:30 p.m. Ernst said "it's a brown liquid that we don't have a clue what it is."
The container included writing in either Chinese or Japanese, Ernst said.
It was about six inches long and four inches high, he said.
Crews dressed in bright green or yellow full-body suits were preparing Thursday night to test the liquid.
A worker discovered the container while unloading a truck at the Hunter's Green Parkway facility.
