Glenwood Springs, Colo. (AP) - Three government buildings in Glenwood Springs are back open after a bomb threat.

The Garfield County Courthouse, Sheriff's Department and County Administration building were closed for much of the day Tuesday after a late morning warning that a bomb would go off in the courthouse in the early afternoon.

Two jury trials were in session and had to be continued.

A bomb squad and a hazards-response team searched the buildings, and they were cleared by 5 p.m.
