A suspicious package that triggered a partial evacuation at the Bank of Montreal building on West Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver is not dangerous, emergency officials say.

Fire crews had briefly evacuated the 15th floor of the BMO building at Georgia and Homer just after 4:00 p.m. after an employee called the fire department with a report of a suspicious package.

Hazmat teams removed the package and after testing it, officials said it was not a biohazard and did not pose any danger.

Traffic on the Georgia Street has returned to normal.
