UPDATE: FRESNO, California – No explosive device was found in a box that was left outside of the KSEE24/CBS47 offices Wednesday morning. 

The box appeared to be filled with metal and trash.

No other information was immediately available.

ORIGINAL STORY: FRESNO, California – The offices of KSEE24 and CBS47 were locked down on Wednesday after a suspicious box was found at the front of the building.

The Fresno Police Department asked that several sections of offices evacuate to the far side of the building.

Police are waiting for equipment to arrive to X-ray the box.

In light of the CNN offices in New York being evacuated as well as explosive devices that were sent to the Clintons and Obamas, law enforcement and the stations agreed that caution was warranted.
