Fire and police officials are investigating a suspicious substance that was mailed to the Second Appellate Court building in downtown Elgin, Illinois.

A Fire department spokeswoman said a clerk in the courthouse opened an incoming envelope this morning that turned out to be filled with a white powder.

Court officials summoned firefighters, who were treating the case as a hazardous-materials incident.

Authorities say no one is complaining of symptoms or illness.
