IMPERIAL — A bomb threat at Imperial Valley College on Wednesday night resulted in classes being canceled and the campus being evacuated.
Victor Jaime, IVC vice president for student services, said shortly before 6 p.m. a call came into the campus switchboard.
Jaime said a female who did not identify herself called to warn campus officials that she overheard two men talking about setting off a bomb in the evening at IVC.
Jaime said the caller hung up before an administrator could talk to her, so as a precaution administrators evacuated the main and extended campuses, since the caller didn't mention a particular campus.
The Imperial County Sheriff's Office was notified and sent its arson unit and other deputies.
Jaime said administrators organized themselves and were sent to evacuate all the buildings on the main campus.
Police departments from El Centro, Brawley and Calexico were notified and evacuated the extension campuses in their cities.
