SHOREVIEW, Minn. - Employees evacuated from a Wells Fargo building have been let back in the building Thursday evening.

The evacuation was triggered when an envelope with a suspicious substance inside arrived at the Blackrock Financial Management building at 1801 Parkview Drive in Shoreview around 2:30p.m. Thursday. The building is related to Wells Fargo.

About 500 workers were forced to leave the building while hazmat crews investigated.

The Ramsey County Sheriff Office tells KARE that one woman who came in contact with the envelope was taken to the Hennepin County Medical Center. Officials say it the hospitalization was just a precaution, and the woman did not show any symptoms at the scene.

Officials are investigating, and the substance is being analyzed.
