May 9 (Bloomberg) -- Bombardier Inc. said its Mirabel factory north of Montreal reopened after a police search failed to turn up explosive devices following a bomb threat.

Workers are being allowed back into the facility, Marc Duchesne, a spokesman for Bombardier, said by telephone. Bomb-sniffing dogs found no suspicious packages on the site, Pierre Morel, a spokesman for the Mirabel police department, said by telephone. Investigators will remain on the grounds as they try to find the source of the scare, Morel said.

Access roads were blocked, nearby houses were evacuated and emergency services were called in after the bomb threat was made earlier today, Radio-Canada and TVA Nouvelles reported.

Bombardier, the world’s third-largest planemaker, is building the CSeries, its newest and biggest jet, in Mirabel. About 2,000 Bombardier Aerospace employees work at the plant.
