Hazmat crews were called to an Allentown nursing home after a white powdery substance was found inside.
The situation unfolded around noon Wednesday, at Liberty Nursing Home at 17th & Liberty Streets.
According to fire officials, a nurse found the substance on the bathroom floor inside one of the resident's rooms.
Police say the powder was later determined to be a prescription pill that had been crushed into a powder.
The room where the powder was found was briefly evacuated.
