CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - Deputies are trying to figure out who called in a bomb threat to a building that houses a sheriff's office.

Police tell us they evacuated the Knox Annex building on HIghway 25E in Corbin as a precaution. Along with a Knox County Sheriff's Office, the county clerk's office and an ambulance service also work out of the building.

State Police responded with a bomb-sniffing dog at the scene, but nothing suspicious was found. Workers were later allowed back inside the building.

Knox County deputies are investigating the case.
