A building on the American University campus was evacuated Wednesday.

American University wrote on Twitter just after 2 p.m. that occupants at the Spring Valley Building were given a mandatory evacuation as a “precautionary measure.” The school then said about 10 minutes later that the building had been reopened.

The American University Police Department, D.C. Fire & EMS and Pepco remained on scene after the building reopened, according to the school.

American University has not yet given a reason for the evacuation.

This is a developing story.
