Police and fire crews are investigating a reported bomb threat to a University of California at Berkeley-affiliated office in Emeryville this morning. The bomb threat to office space rented by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the EmeryStation East building at 5885 Hollis St. was reported around 7 a.m., UC Berkeley police Lt. Eric Tejada said.
The two floors that house the lab facility had not opened for the day when the threat was received and are remaining closed during the investigation, but other parts of the building have not been evacuated, Tejada said. Bomb-sniffing K-9s from the UC Berkeley Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security were also there to inspect the building.
