PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A suspicious letter sparked the evacuation of The Art Institute of Phoenix and Argosy University.

The buildings were emptied Wednesday afternoon out of an abundance of caution, officials said.

A substance found in the letter proved to be harmless.

The campus plans to reopen Thursday morning.

People with information about the letter are asked to contact the Phoenix Police Crime Stop Tip Line at 602-262-6151.
