No Danger Found After Christian County Health Department Evacuated Wednesday



Officials determined there was no danger after emergency personnel evacuated the Christian County Health Department for a short period of time Wednesday. The action came after the Health Department received an unknown substance for evaluation. Personnel were initially called to the scene around 11:30am.

The News Edge spoke with Deputy Chief Eric Bleidt of the Hopkinsville Fire Department on the scene, once the determination had been made that there was no danger to Health Department staff, or to the surrounding neighborhood.



Several streets in the immediate area, and the parking lot at the Health Department were blocked off while the incident was investigated. The scene was cleared in about an hour.
