Street closed in white powder scare

A Rotorua street has been blocked off as emergency services respond to a white powder alert at the Electoral Offices.

Fire staff said the powder fell from a mail item.

Police, ambulance and the fire brigade were all called to the offices just after 8am today after the discovery.

Amohia St has been blocked off between Haupapa and Pukuatua Sts.

Fire officers in hazard suits have gone in to try to identify the substance.

The area is being treated as a crime scene.
