(FORT HALL, ID) — A bomb threat at the Fort Hall Tribal Business Center prompted a mass evacuation Wednesday afternoon. The threat was called in at 1:52 p.m. with the bomb schedule to detonate at 2 p.m. Authorities evacuated all buildings within a quarter-mile radius of the threat, with business center staff being moved to the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel. A bomb squad from Pocatello combed the area for explosives but did not find anything. Officials say business will resume as usual today.
