CALHOUN COUNTY, Ala. -- The Calhoun County Courthouse was evacuated Wednesday morning due to a bomb threat, ABC 33/40 reporter Robert Richardson reports.

Authorities used bomb-sniffing K-9 dogs to sweep the property and building. Shortly after 10 a.m. and after no explosive devices were found, law enforcement gave the "all clear" for the court house to reopen. 

An investigation into who made the threat remains ongoing. No arrests have been made at this time.
