RHINELANDER (AP) – An unattended black duffel bag caused authorities to evacuate the Oneida County Courthouse.

The building is reopening Tuesday morning after it was closed for business Monday afternoon. The bag was found in a Department of Social Services waiting room and its owner could not be located.

Sheriff’s Lt. Lloyd Gauthier tells WAOW-TV there was no cause for alarm. The bag contained diapers.
