An unknown chemical substance on Saturday was being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department’s bomb squad at UCLA but there has been no reported injuries or evacuations, authorities said.

The incident was initially reported at 9:20 a.m. as a suspicious package on Gayley Avenue and Strathmore Place in Westwood, said Officer Rosario Herrera of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

The LAPD’s bomb squad has since responded for a hazardous material incident, she said.

“I haven’t heard of any injuries or evacuations,” Herrera said, adding it appears there are no threats associated with the incident.

The Los Angeles Fire Department also responded to a reported chemical investigation for an unknown substance at 10:33 a.m. at 600 S. Gayley, fire officials said.

The LAFD is supporting the LAPD’s bomb squad in its investigation, said LAFD spokeswoman Amy Bastman.
