HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Officials at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam have reopened all gates following a “security incident” on Thursday morning.

According to officials, a military working dog alerted on a civilian contractor’s vehicle that was entering the Halawa gate during a routine inspection around 7:45 a.m. However, upon further inspection, officials did not find anything of concern.

All gates were initially secured but later reopened. A portion of Kamehameha Highway was also blocked off during the investigation.

The National Park Service also closed the Pearl Harbor National Memorial Visitor’s Center and stopped tour boats to the USS Arizona Memorial out of an abundance of caution.

The scene was cleared at 9:30 a.m.

No injuries have been reported.
