A suspicious package was found at Spokane Fire Station 1 on Riverside Avenue on Friday morning. Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said the package was deemed a credible threat at first. A bomb squad came to the scene and analyzed the package. They determined the package was actually an empty suitcase, and not a safety threat. Riverside Avenue was blocked from Browne Street to Division Street and reopened at about 11:20 a.m. The fire station was evacuated during the bomb squad evaluation.
