Columbus Police Return To Headquarters After Evacuation
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.

No injuries were reported.
