Columbus police are back in their headquarters building this morning after an evacuation overnight. Superviser Robert Little says an explosion heard by employees about 7:30 last night is linked to a battery on a scissor-lift.

The scissor-lift is situated in the first floor lobby of the building during a renovation project. The building was evacuated for about 6 hours, until 1 a.m. Wednesday, while the terrorism task force, K-9 units and swat teams checked each floor.

No injuries were reported.
