The Lund-Crestliner factory in New York Mills, Minn., was evacuated Tuesday after a bomb threat was reported.

At 1:27 p.m., a 911 call was placed and a male caller said "There is a bomb in the factory," and hung up, police chief Jim Van Schaick told the Detroit Lakes Tribune newspaper.

Brunswick Corp., which owns and operates the factory, evacuated all employees shortly after the call, according to Van Schaick.

Nothing was reportedly found in the building, the Fergus Falls Journal said, and employees were back at work Wednesday.
