SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A hospital in Sccott County had to be evacuated Thursday morning after a bomb threat.

Police had the Georgetown Community Hospital entrances blocked off around 6:45 a.m. after a bomb threat was made over the phone.

Hospital administrators say they took the call seriously, but "they found the person inside and there was no threat."

No word if that person was a patient.

The hospital is back open now.
