Wal-Mart Supercenter Was Temporarily Closed

An eastern Kentucky super center is back open Thursday morning.

A bomb threat closed the Hazard Wal-Mart during the early morning hours on Thursday.

The store was evacuated after the threat was called in and police brought in a bomb detection dog to help them search the building.

“Wal-Mart and our department were able to safely evacuate the building once we had the building evacuated we got our bomb detection dog up and cleared the building without incident. There was nothing found and the investigation is on going,” Sergeant James East said.

Police are working to find out who made the threat.
