MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) — The area around the San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View was shut down Sunday evening and buildings evacuated after a resident spotted a pressure cooker near a building, according to police.

The resident at 545 San Antonio Road called police around 6:10 p.m. to report seeing a pressure cooker in the bushes near the building’s lobby doors, police said.

Police responding to the scene used an infrared device to determine that the pressure cooker was radiating heat.

At that point, police set up a perimeter around the area contained by California Street, San Antonio Road, El Camino Real and Showers Drive and evacuated some buildings in the area.

The area was declared clear around 9 p.m., police said.
