Update 12 p.m.: Officer Gordon Shyy tells us that the scene has been deemed safe for pedestrians and cars, however, the occupant of the room where the object was found is still being detained for further investigation.

Original story 9:58 a.m.: Police have closed off McAllister between Jones and Seventh streets while the bomb squad investigates a suspicious object found in a residential building early this morning.

The Chron reports that firefighters were called to a fire reported inside the building at about 6:30 a.m.; as police were evacuating people, they noticed the "suspicious object" in one of the rooms, Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The bomb squad was called out to examine the unknown object at about 9 a.m. Meanwhile police have detained the main renting the room where the object was found.

We put in a call to SFPD to find out the details. We'll tell you more when we know more.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
