A smoky mailbox causes quite the stir in a redlands neighborhood Thursday.

Just after 4:00 PM a woman opened her mailbox to find a small plastic bottle with a steaming liquid in it. The sheriff's office, the Grand Junction Fire Department and the bomb squad were all called out. The bottle never exploded but it did expand, officials say there was an acid substance inside that could have seriously injured someone.

The sheriff's office doesn't believe the house was specifically targeted and there is no suspect information at this time.
