The Fort Collins building for the United States Department of Agriculture is closed along with five other buildings across five states on Tuesday due to anonymous violent threats.

According to a report by the Coloradoan, the building located about a half mile away from Colorado State University at 2150 Centre Ave. had signs taped on the doors Tuesday morning that said the buildings were closed and no one would be allowed inside.
