Gate 1 on Fort Carson has reopened on Thursday morning after a suspicious package prompted its closure.
Maintenance crews found the object near the gate around 9:30 a.m. They notified authorities who closed the gate and sent in a bomb robot to inspect the object.
The object turned out to be a step stool covered with camouflage material and was deemed not dangerous. It is unclear who left the stool and why.
The gate reopened around 11:30 a.m.
