SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio International Airport was evacuated after officials say they received a bomb threat alleging three packages had been left inside a parking garage.
Airport spokesman Rich Johnson said Wednesday about 2,000 passengers inside two terminals were herded onto the tarmac.
San Antonio Fire Department spokeswoman Deborah Foster says bomb-sniffing dogs have not found a suspicious device.
Johnson said that someone called the airport making a "very specific" threat but did not elaborate. He said passengers inside the terminal were herded onto the tarmac and that arriving planes were parked away from the gates.
Johnson said the evacuation order was called at 2:35 p.m. CST.
KVUE's sister station KENS 5 reports passengers were seen hustling off aircraft and standing in large lines on the airport tarmac. San Antonio police blocked off any access into the airport, rerouting traffic away from the scene.
San Antonio police and several federal agencies are investigating the threat.
