HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, MA (AP) — Portions of Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts have been evacuated due to security concerns about a moving truck.
In a message on the base website, security forces said they became concerned Thursday morning during a routine vehicle inspection at a gate.
State police said the screening found indicators of potentially hazardous material. The truck is owned by Big Foot Moving & Storage. A woman who answered the phone at the company’s Acton headquarters said “we don’t know what’s going on” and declined further comment.
The base put a response team in place, closed the gate and evacuated several nearby base facilities.
