A bomb threat in San Francisco was cleared by police on Monday.

The threat was called in at the 1600 block of Market Street, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

The building houses the American Red Cross offices, according to local broadcaster KTVU. The threat was called in about 10:15 a.m.; the Red Cross contacted the police after someone had called the Red Cross in regards to the threat.

About 24 people that had been evacuated from the offices, as well as the National Holistic Institute (in the same building), were waiting at the corner of Market and Gough Streets, before they were let back in after the threat was cleared.
