Battalion Chief Patrick Ferguson says emergency responders are still at the scene in downtown Columbus. He says the cause of what a caller reported as an explosion at about 7:30 p.m. has not been determined. The building has since been evacuated and locked down.
No injuries have been reported. Ferguson says there are no signs of smoke.
A police public information officer did not immediately return a phone message.
