A man left a suitcase near a fire department downtown Friday, and fearing it was a bomb, authorities evacuated the building and shut down the roads surrounding it, according to police.
Fire Station 1, at 44 W. Riverside Ave., was evacuated shortly after 10 a.m., shutting down the road from Browne to Division streets.
A bomb squad found the suitcase to be empty and of no threat, and the road was reopened.
