CLEVES, Ohio -- Authorities cleared the scene and determined there was no bomb despite a threatening note found outside a Cleves Skyline Chili restaurant Friday night.

An employee reported a bomb threat from a local Skyline Chili to the Hamilton County Sheriff's office around 10 p.m., causing the restaurant to be evacuated. 

Authorities on scene said the employee saw a note on a costumer's car. The note said there was a bomb under the car, and that they had 45 seconds.

When police arrived, they used a city bus to hold the Skyline employees during investigation, which lasted just under three hours.

The Skyline Chili is located in the 200 block of S. Main Street.
