SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An investigation is underway after someone called in a bomb threat at the Spartanburg County Courthouse Tuesday morning.

Clerk of Court Hope Blackley said the caller stated that a bomb would go off at noon.

The building was evacuated and Blackley said the sheriff’s office’s bomb dogs were sweeping the building for any possible threats.

Blackley said roads around the perimeter of the courthouse-- Daniel Morgan Avenue, Magnolia Ave, and Library Street—were blocked off as a precaution.

Around 12:30 p.m. Blackley said deputies gave the "all clear" and people were allowed to return to the building. Blackley said deputies did not find a threat.

While the courthouse is located in the city, Spartanburg police said deputies are leading the investigation since the court house is a county-owned building.
