    An all-clear was given at the Ford House Office Building after it was evacuated about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday due to a suspicious package.

    Staffers were told to avoid the area until further notice.

    The questionable item was found in a mechanical room, a spokeswoman said. It looked like it could be a potential safety threat, but was determined to not be dangerous after an inspection. It's unclear what the object was.
