EDMONDS, Wash. -- A fire spokeswoman says blame the crows for a "suspicious powder" scare at Washington state intersection that detoured traffic for more than an hour.
A witness finally told the crew that a couple of crows were to blame. Hynes says a woman was going jogging when she noticed the birds dragging a bag of white flour.
Hynes says the woman took the bag away from the birds, put it in a garbage can and kept running. It took firefighters about an hour to clear the scene.
Says Hynes: "Two crows and a two-alarm hazmat incident."
