Fresno television stations KSEE 24 and KGPE 47 were partially evacuated Wednesday morning after a suspicious box was found outside their shared office.

The TV stations are located at 5035 E. McKinley Ave.

Fresno police deployed a robot to check out the package, which turned out to be an empty computer box.

The box raised heightened concerns because it was found at a TV station, Sgt. Curt Chastain said.

Also Wednesday, suspicious packages sent to other media outlets forced evacuations at CNN’s office in Manhattan and at the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Meanwhile, packages addressed to former President Barack Obama, former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz were intercepted.
