RIDGEDFIELD PARK, N.J. -- What turned out to be a harmless package sticking out of a U.S. Postal Service box near the Ridgefield Park Municipal Building late Tuesday morning brought the bomb squad.

Village police secured the area and notified area residents and business owners and summoned the Bergen County Sheriff's Bomb Squad, which inspected the package -- a traditional rectangular-shaped cardboard box -- and the mailbox, Lt. Joseph Rella said.

A little over 15 minutes later, the scene was cleared.
