London police say they are investigating a suspicious package Friday afternoon.

Emergency personnel, including a HAZMAT unit, were called to 148 Fullarton St. about 3:50 p.m.

A patient was seen coming out of the building on a gurney. The patient was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

CTV News has learned that the package was found on the second floor of the building.

Others on that floor were being detained on the street once they were evacuated. They were later taken to another building away from the street.

Fullarton Street is closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic from Talbot Street to Richmond Street.

Police are asking the public to avoid the area.
