Fresno police are searching Bullard High School with bomb-sniffing dogs after someone called the library and said something would blow up at 11:55 a.m.
The call came in at 11:25 a.m. Students were evacuated by around 11:30 a.m., said Fresno police spokesman Lt. Joe Gomez.
Police don’t know who the caller was, Gomez said, but he said a male caller made a non-specific threat that something was going to blow up on campus. He said it is believed the call was a hoax, though police will continue to try to identify the caller.
Gomez said investigators have not found the bomb threat to be credible. Students remained evacuated on the school’s athletic field until the bomb-sniffing dogs finished their search.

Finding nothing, students were dismissed early. Fresno Unified School District said parents and staff were notified and transportation collected students on normal bus routes. All campus activities were canceled for the rest of the day but will return to normal on Friday.
