Suspicious package that led to Lexington street closings held light fixtures

December 6, 2012 

Portions of Vine Street and Limestone in Lexington were temporarily closed Thursday morning while police investigated a suspicious package that turned out to be a box of light fixtures.

The package was reported at 100 East Vine Street, police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. After fire and police responded, it was determined that the box contained light fixtures.

The box was found on the second floor of the building on Vine Street; some firefighters were still there about 10:45 a.m., fire Maj. Marcus Wainscott said.

The streets were reopened about 10:40 a.m.
