Just after 2:00 pm, Wednesday, June 23, 2010, firefighters were alerted to investigate an automatic fire alarm sounding at 5000 Rhode Island Ave in Hyattsville. Upon arrival it was discovered that a HVAC unit malfunctioned and released a small quantity of freon. As a precaution, the District I Police Station was evacuated while the haz-mat team secured the effected HVAC unit.

The County Services Complex has several buildings and police operations were temporarily relocated to a nearby building. Police operations were not been impacted as a result of this precautionary evacuation.
Firefighters and haz-mat team members ventilatilated building whereas the building resumed normal operations at about 4:00 pm.
