(Updated at 9 a.m.) Authorities who investigated a suspicious powder in a NoMa-area office building this morning discovered that the substance was coffee creamer, a D.C. Fire and EMS representative said.

Officials received a report of a white powder in a letter at 111 Massachusetts Ave. NW about 7:30 a.m., D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Doug Buchanan said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what organization reported having a suspicious powder. But the Massachusetts Ave. building holds offices for the General Services Administration and Department of Homeland Security, according to its owner, Douglas Development Corp.
