LOS ANGELES (AP) - A California Highway Patrol communications center in Los Angeles was evacuated for several hours Tuesday afternoon because of a bomb threat.

Authorities say about 60 people were evacuated from the building in the Eagle Rock area around 3:30 p.m. after an anonymous caller made the threat.

CHP and Caltrans workers, who also have offices in the building, were forced to leave for about 2 ½ hours while bomb-sniffing dogs searched the complex. They found no explosives.

During the evacuation, incoming phone calls were handled by other offices and CHP patrol cars remained on duty.
