SAN DIEGO -- Bomb squad and Hazmat teams were called to a fire station in North Park Sunday afternoon after a package with threatening writing was found outside.
After a roughly two-hour investigation, crews cleared the scene without finding anything dangerous.
SDFD tweeted out a photo of the package, a taped-up cardboard box with a skull and crossbones, and the words "poison" and "toxic floride," scrawled on the outside. Officials said all they found inside was "aluminum flux and some trash."
At about 3p on Sunday someone left this box at SDFD North Park station on 32nd St. The bomb team was called to ID the contents - aluminum flux and some trash. Thx to @SanDiegoPD for assistance. Street is open and residents will be back home shortly. #teamwork pic.twitter.com/xmclaDEzJ3

A person first discovered the package outside Station 14, on 32nd Street near Lincoln Avenue, around 3 p.m. Both Hazmat and bomb squad teams were called to the scene, closing 32nd and Lincoln while they worked.
Shortly after 5 p.m., the bomb squad completed their investigation without finding any explosives. The Hazmat team concluded their own investigation a short time later after finding no hazardous materials in the box.
