OXON HILL, Md. (WUSA9) -- Investigators are looking for possible environmental contamination inside an office building in Oxon Hill, after IRS employees working there have raised the alarm about deaths and illnesses there.
Both the IRS and the building's managers say environmental health experts were brought in Friday to begin a study of conditions inside this 10-story office building.
However, there are no conclusions about what may be going on here and the building remains open for business.
The building at 6008 Oxon Hill Rd is known as the Constellation Centre and among the biggest tenants is the Internal Revenue Service office of procurement.
The IRS confirms that employees here have raised the alarm about recent illnesses and deaths, that some suspect may be linked to environmental conditions in the building.
