A battery exploded from over use in a work space inside a first floor maintenaince door. That was all it was. Everybody else over reacted but at least it gave them a chance to practice the building evacuation plan. Must ado about nothing.

According to the Columbus Dispatch Newspaper the building was searched by the Columbus Fire Bomb Squad which found nothing, a SWAT team which found nothing and a Homeland Security bomb dog team which found nothing. The Police Department maintenance man went right to the closet and said this is what happened. I guess it's just a matter of knowing where to look.
