HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Things have calmed down at the UPS distribution facility and customer center on Winchester Road after an evacuation Friday morning.  The facility is open for business again.

Huntsville Police say the package that had an unusual smell turned out to have hydrogen peroxide inside.

HEMSI, Huntsville Police, Huntsville Fire Rescue, and Hazmat crews responded to check the package after UPS managers called them.  They were concerned and followed protocol, evacuating the building.

A few employees were treated on the scene as a precaution.
