DENVER - The Denver Police bomb squad found a suspicious bag was not a threat and the evacuation of the 28th floor of the Lincoln Center office building was lifted at about 6:40 p.m. Tuesday, police said via Twitter.
"All clear given on incident. Bag contained no dangerous incendiary devices. Occupants allowed back inside," Denver Police tweeted.
The report of the suspicious bag caused police to evacuate the 28th floor of the office building at 1660 Lincoln St. at about 5:50 p.m.
Webb Group International, a consulting firm founded by former Denver Mayor Wellington E. Webb, is a tenant on the 28th floor. The Webb Group's website says it consults with mayors and other city officials on the financing, construction and management of hotel and convention centers. It also works on downtown economic projects.
The building's other tenants include several law firms and energy companies.
