DENVER (CBS4)– Police in Denver have cleared a suspicious package after they evacuated an apartment building near 9th and Downing on Thursday afternoon while bomb squads investigated.

That package was determined to be a homemade alarm system. Residents were allowed to return home at 5 p.m.

Employees of a restoration company told CBS4 that there had been a fire in the apartment building recently. Most of the units remain evacuated after that fire. The restoration company is cleaning out the other units. That’s when they found something suspicious and called police.
