EMERYVILLE -- Police and firefighters are at the scene of a bomb threat reported this morning at a laboratory space rented by Lawrence Berkeley Lab.
The threat to the office in the EmeryStation East building at 5885 Hollis Street was received about 7 a.m., according to Emeryville police Sgt. Fred Dauer.
The building, completed in 2007, houses workspaces for the Berkeley lab as well as the Joint BioEnergy Institute, Amyris Biotechnologies, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceutical, KineMed and Berkeley Lights, according to a website created by Wareham Development, the building's owner.
Officials were still clearing the building as of about 7:40 a.m., according to UC Berkeley Police Lt. Eric Tejada. Dauer said his agency was working with UC Police and the Alameda County Fire Department.
Tejada confirmed that UC officials had received a threat, but would not elaborate further.
