The IHOP located on Las Vegas Blvd has been evacuated due to a suspicious suitcase that was found on the sidewalk.
Las Vegas Fire Public information officer Tim Szymanski and he told me that crews are on the scene but that no threats were issued. Although this is common in Las Vegas, fire and police crews will remain on the scene until the investigation is over which sometimes takes several hours so you may see increased police activity in the area. Las Vegas Blvd. is closed to traffic between Sahara Avenue and St. Louis as the investigation continues.
