Police and fire crews spent the evening in Lexington investigating a suspicious package left at the McDonald's on Limestone.
Police evacuated the immediate area as the hazardous devices unit was called in to remove the package. Investigators say it took about two-and-a-half hours from the time the first call was made to removal of the bag.
Police say clothes, headphones and a few other items were found inside the bag, but nothing else. Police say it's a case of being better off safe than sorry.
The McDonald's is open 24-hours. Investigators say when they cleared the scene they saw employees coming back to open the restaurant.
