A Sunday email to a U.S. Attorney's Office spokesperson in Boston was returned with a promise to pass along any information that becomes available.

ADAMS, Mass. — The FBI was at 10 Murray St. late Saturday evening for undisclosed reasons. 

About eight people, some wearing navy blue T-shirts with "FBI Emergency Response Team" on the back, could be seen going in and out of the multi-family house through a side entrance off the driveway.

The officials worked out of two black sport utility vehicles parked in the driveway with a blue pop-up tent parked between the SUVs and the residence. 

Both Adams Police and Fire Departments were on scene. 

Adams Police Chief Richard Tarsa at about 9:15 p.m. said that he was not authorized to share any information. After consulting with one of the FBI agents on scene, Tarsa referred all questions to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Springfield. 

Tarsa did say that no area residents were evacuated as a result of the activity. The road remained open to car traffic at all times. 

A large Magnum floodlight was on scene to illuminate the activity in the driveway. 

According to activity heard on the police scanner, Adams' ambulance service had a staging area on nearby Croteau Street. No medical personnel were present at 10 Murray St. shortly after 9 p.m.

This story will be updated as new information is available.
