PLATTSBURGH — At around 8:20 Monday night a possible hazardous materials situation was reported at 460 Margaret St., the former Lakeside Apartment Complex

For about 30 minutes, North Margaret Street was closed between Boynton Avenue and Scomotion Creek.

Dispatch said a box of chemicals containing a white-yellow powder had been dropped in the complex, which closed in the spring of 2011.

However, the powder was later determined to probably be ink toner.

The person who reported the incident was quarantined briefly.

Traffic reopened at around 9 p.m.
