(West Fargo, ND) -- The scene at a vacant hotel in West Fargo is cleared after police surrounded the building.

Squad cars blocked the entrances to the Howard Johnson Inn on Main Avenue East last night for about an hour after a report of lights being on inside the empty building.

Police walked through the building with a K9 unit, but found no evidence anyone had been inside.

Authorities say there has been squatting activity at the hotel in the past.
