Jacob Isaacs, who was in class at Holmes Hall when it was evacuated, told NBC Boston that there was some confusion when the incident happened.

“We were in class and then we saw two police officers walking through the building and as soon as we look out the window we see a fire truck with the lights on,” Issacs said.

“Our teacher says, ‘I need to see what’s going on’, and he sees the fire truck driving and there’s a police car outside and while that’s happening, the fire alarm goes off right away.

Isaacs added that they heard nothing resembling an explosion until they saw the first responders arrive.

The investigation into the incident continues and Northeastern University police are asking people to “avoid the area.”

More to come.
