Ohio Police HQ Evacuated After Explosion

September 25, 2013  | 

Officers and command staff were forced out of the Columbus, Ohio, police headquarters Tuesday evening after a battery exploded, causing a boom that brought homeland security responders to the scene.

No one was injured in the explosion and officers returned to the Columbus Division of Police headquarters Wednesday morning. The agency's bomb squad responded to the scene, reports the Associated Press.

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.
