THACKERVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities say they didn't find any explosives in the WinStar World Casino near the Oklahoma-Texas state line after someone called in a bomb threat.

Sgt. Robby Williams of the Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police says employees and patrons were allowed back inside early Friday morning. The casino is again operating as usual.

Bomb dogs were brought in to scour the premises. No other buildings were evacuated.

The casino employs more than 2,400 full- and part-time workers and was working on an expansion to become Oklahoma's largest casino, according to its web site.
