Several buildings were evacuated in the northeast Calgary due to a suspicious package on Monday, according to 660 News Calgary.

Calgary police officials responded to the 2600 block of 18 Street NE shortly after 8 am and cordoned off the area.

The package was detonated by the bomb disposal robot.

The package was right outside the Vista Square building in northeast Calgary.
