Business at an Ironton restaurant was interrupted Sunday evening by a bomb threat.

The Ironton Police Department was called to Pizza Hut just before 10 p.m. Sunday.

A male caller told an employee that something in the store was going to blow up, Chief Jim Carey said.

Two employees were the only people in the store at the time, Carey said. The restaurant was evacuated while the Ironton Fire Department checked the building. No bomb was found.

No arrests have been made.
