New England Walmart Closes After Bomb Threat; Nothing Suspicious Found
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A bomb threat to a Massachusetts Walmart was apparently a hoax.
Dennis Leger of the Springfield Fire Department says calls to the Springfield Walmart came in around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The building was evacuated and the arson and bomb squad conducted a search of the building. State police bomb-sniffing dogs were also brought into the building.
Leger and a state police spokesman both said nothing suspicious was found.
There was no word on arrests.
