TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- For the second time in two days, Tallahassee Fire Department is responding to a suspicious letter.

We're learning 200 employees have been evacuated from the Forrest Building at the Koger Center complex located off of Apalachee Parkway.

According to Tallahassee Fire Department, crews are responding to a report of a suspicious powder on a letter.

It's not clear if there is any real threat.

One day before, on Monday, Tallahassee Fire Department's Hazmat team was called out across the street from the Koger Center to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles headquarters. Staff members there had opened a letter that threatened that it contained the lethal substance anthrax.

Fifteen-hundred employees were evacuated until early afternoon. All tests came back negative for any presence of a harmful substance.

There is no word whether the two incidents are connected.
