(KSL News) A Skywest jet at Salt Lake International Airport is evacuated after an apparent bomb threat.

The Delta Connection flight bound for Fresno, California was scheduled to take off at 10:15 last night.

But before boarding a man made a threatening comment about the flight.

Bomb sniffing dogs were brought out to check for any explosive devices. Nothing was found. The man was taken into custody for questioning, but airport officials do not believe the threat was serious.

After about an hour and a half delay that flight did eventually take off.
