Authorities have evacuated about 30 people from the administrative offices of the San Antonio International Airport after the discovery of an envelope containing white powder. Officials say airport employees found the envelope in the mail around 2:30 p.m. Monday. Airport spokesman Rich Johnson told the San Antonio Express News that the incident did not affect passengers or flights.

A spokesman for the San Antonio fire department said firefighters trained to handle hazardous materials were at the airport. The department's hazardous materials team was not sent to the scene.

The offices overlook the check-in level of the airport. No injuries were reported.
