WASHINGTON - A Capitol office building was evacuated Wednesday night on a hazardous substance alert after police discovered a suspicious powder in its attic, authorities said.

The Homeland Security Department was investigating, but a senior counterterror official said it did not immediately appear to be an emergency.

Hazardous material teams and firefighters were dispatched to the Senate Russell Office Building after a sensor tested positive for a dangerous substance, the counterterror official said. A second test proved negative, and officials were conducting a third test in the evening for more conclusive results.

However, the official said the tests were a precautionary measure.

It was unclear what potential substances were detected, but the official said there was no indication of a nerve agent. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the investigation was continuing.

They found pieces of Ted Kennedy's liver.

It's probably a box of wig powder from the olden days.
