(JBPHH) — The Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) is investigating the allegations of possession of an unknown hazardous material at a residence on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Earlier today, residents were asked to avoid the area near that residence while the investigation was underway. Similarly, students at Hickam Elementary School were delayed from release out of an abundance of caution and due to their proximity to the investigation scene.
Federal Fire Department HAZMAT assisted in the initial investigation which has concluded and there is no risk to the surrounding community. Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, no additional information is available at this time. We appreciate our residents' patience while we conduct this matter.
