Dallas Building Evacuated: One Main Place Gets Suspicious Package

Just one day after a suspicious package was investigated at Sen. John Cornyn's suburban Dallas office, a downtown Dallas building was evacuated due to a suspicious package.

NBC's local affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reports that the building in question was One Main Place, a 33-floor skyscraper.

The evacuation took place Thursday after a bomb-sniffing dog smelled something suspicious in a FedEx package. Dallas police are reportedly heading to the scene.

UPDATE (12:20 p.m. ET): Dallas Fire Rescue has given the all clear, per the Dallas Observer. Apparently two sniffing dogs hit the box but it just contained paper files. DFR spokesman Joel Lavender says, "I know it's not the most glamorous thing to find, but in a situation like this, we're just glad it's safe after all."
