SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Authorities evacuated the Spartanburg County Courthouse after a bomb threat, but say no bomb was found inside.

Deputies said in a statement that the threat was made Friday morning. Along with ordering everyone out of the building, authorities also closed streets around the downtown Spartanburg courthouse, snarling traffic.

Investigators say a caller made the threat to a 911 operator.

Deputies say employees are being let back in the courthouse Friday afternoon.

Authorities are trying to determine the identity of the caller who made the threat.
