Police have given the all-clear after a suspicious package discovered near the University of California at San Francisco Medical Center this morning was found to be harmless, a university spokeswoman said. The object that caused the concern was found in the 600 block of Parnassus Avenue.
The fire department was notified of the incident at 7:46 a.m. The San Francisco Police Department’s bomb squad was called in, and Parnasssus Avenue was shut down. A nearby UCSF childcare facility was evacuated, university spokeswoman Elizabeth Fernandez said. Police gave the all-clear at about 10 a.m., Fernandez said. San Francisco Municipal Railway’s 6 and 43 lines were rerouted while the street closure was in effect, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.
