COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a report of an explosion that triggered the evacuation of the Columbus Police Department headquarters Tuesday night was related to a nearby construction project.
The police department said on Twitter that the department's headquarters was all clear and reopening early Wednesday morning.
A Columbus Fire Department official says a caller reported an explosion at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. There were no injuries.
Several emergency responders were dispatched to the scene in downtown Columbus. The building is located in a business district, a few blocks from the Ohio Statehouse.
The Columbus Dispatch reports a stretch of the street where the police headquarters is located was blocked following the incident.
A police public information officer did not immediately return phone messages.
The police department's non-emergency and 911 lines were not affected.
