U.S. Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Lucy Martinez said some people reported feeling ill with "watery eyes", and several people were evaluated and treated at hospitals. At least four ambulances were on the scene, according to Garrett, to treat those people.

About 10 people at a Kansas City, Missouri, IRS building were sickened with symptoms including chest pains and vomiting after they came into contact on Friday with a suspicious package delivered to their office, local news reports said.

Chief Garrett said emergency workers "isolated the package" and "haven't found anything else".

The Federal Protective Services, which responds to terrorism and criminal acts against US government infrastructure, also is involved in the investigation.

The package's contents have not yet been determined, but the fire department is checking for gasses and fumes. The building was not evacuated.

A federal organization that responds to terrorism and criminal acts against USA government infrastructure is investigating after a suspicious package sickened about 10 people at the IRS building in Kansas City, Missouri.

Chief Garrett said he did not know what was inside the package.
