The Cannon House Office Building was evacuated Thursday morning after an audible alarm went off.

The evacuation in the nation’s capital comes as numerous suspicious packages were sent to Democrats throughout the week, according to Fox 5.


Fire trucks and police officers were seen approaching the House office building. (RELATED: Report: Joe Biden Becomes 9th Bomb Target)

Not long after 12 p.m., Capitol Police gave an “all clear” and will begin to let people back into the building.

The cause of the evacuation still remains unclear.
