Fresno County sheriff's deputies evacuated a county building Tuesday afternoon after a suspicious bag was found nearby.
The sheriff's explosives team was at the scene.
Sheriff's spokesman Chris Curtice said the building at Tenth and Lane avenues houses information technology workers and members of the Fresno County Probation Department.
The bag was seen by a worker about noon at the northwest corner of the building. About 200 workers were asked to leave the building as a precaution. Some residents of nearby houses were escorted from the neighborhood by Fresno police officers.
