Mail delivery will be delayed after a suspicious package turned up at the Lyons post office Saturday morning.

A bomb squad from the Cook County sheriff's office went to the scene. Investigators say the package had an incendiary device and a suspicious white substance. They evacuated the post office, and all staffers were decontaminated. No one was hurt.

Ogden Avenue was closed for a few hours but it is now open.
