OXFORD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The all clear has been given on the Ole Miss campus, after the Lyceum was evacuated briefly Wednesday afternoon because of a suspicious package.

The Ole Miss newspaper, the Daily Mississippian, tweeted that one of the staff members in the chancellor's suite received the package and shortly after opening it, developed a rash.

Quoting Ole Miss Chief Communications officer Tom Eppes, the tweet says the evacuation was just a precaution.

The HAZMAT team evaluated the package and no danger was found.
