A letter with a “suspicious substance” on it and addressed to a professor prompted an evacuation of a Cal State Fullerton campus building Tuesday, but authorities later determined it was harmless.

McCarthy Hall was evacuated just after 2:20 p.m., and remained closed until just before 3:40 p.m. when a hazardous materials team gave the all-clear.

The letter had a couple of “rambling sentences” on it, according to Cal State Fullerton police Capt. Scot Willey, who said a few hundred students and faculty were inconvenienced “in the heart of their finals.”
