OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla_ People are being allowed back into the Oklahoma State Capitol following a bomb threat Friday morning.

Governor Mary Fallin was among those evacuated. Rep. Joe Dorman said the fire alarm went off Friday morning, then Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers came to each office and told everyone to leave the building. Rep. Dorman said the evacuation was efficient, calm, and safe. Officials said they originally thought they were evacuating the building because of a fire, but they later learned there had been a bomb threat on the building.

Police and the bomb squad searched the State Capitol room by room to make sure there is no legitimate threat.

Hundreds of young students were reportedly at the State Capitol celebrating Colonial Day.

No one was hurt during the evacuation. It appears the bomb threat was just a hoax.
