A bomb scare at Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California yesterday prompted authorities to evacuate a building on the campus.

Curiously, the tip off that there might be a bomb at Facebook’s HQ was sent to the New York Police Department which then alerted Menlo Park police.

Authorities conducted a search at Facebook’s headquarters late on Tuesday afternoon and found nothing.

“The San Mateo County bomb unit was dispatched with explosive detection dogs that conducted a sweep of the building and found no suspicious packages or devices,” Menlo Park police said.

There were no injuries or casualties and according to a report by Reuters, everybody is safe.

“We take the safety and security of our people at Facebook extremely seriously and are glad that everyone is safe,” a Facebook spokesperson told Reuters.

Facebook said that it will work closely with local authorities to investigate the threat and monitor the situation.
