This event is over. It turned out to be a hoaxed. Fife police have not called me back but here’s what our news partners are reporting.


Fife police and Tacoma firefighters are on the scene of a suspicious package found outside, near the Costco business center in Fife, the Tacoma Fire Department reported.

The package, which had a note, is being investigated by Fife police and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The Port of Seattle bomb squad also is on the scene.

The package is on the grass on the edge of a parking lot. The business center is located at 3900 20th St. E. in Fife.

The Tacoma Fire Department’s hazmat team was assembling in the area to be ready if needed, fire spokesman Tory Green said.
