INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Fire investigators were called to St. Vincent’s Hospital Saturday afternoon to investigate an unknown substance left at the front entrance.

Officials say someone walked into the hospital just before 4 p.m. with five 1-gallon water jugs, placed them on the front desk, and left.

A security guard at the hospital removed the containers and brought them to the facility’s hazardous material shed outside the hospital.

The Indianapolis Fire Department’s HazMat team was called to evaluate the substance which was later deemed non-hazardous.

Officials say hospital operations were not interrupted. IMPD is now investigating.
