Operations at the Fort McMurray Airport have returned to normal following a brief evacuation.
Wood Buffalo RCMP were called to the airport around 12:00 p.m. Thursday noon after a suspicious package was discovered.
Police quickly confirmed the package wasn’t a threat to the public and everyone was allowed to re-enter the building.
