Statue of Liberty evacuated, reopened

By Ed O'Keefe

Updated 3:04 p.m. ET
Hundreds of visitors evacuated the Statue of Liberty Wednesday afternoon after a faulty sensor reported a smoke incident there, according to the National Park Service.

The statue reopened to visitors at 2:40 p.m. ET, after officials had evacuated hundreds of visitors to the statue earlier in the afternoon, according to spokeswoman Mindy Rambo.

The New York Fire Department responded to the scene and Liberty Island remained open during the incident, Rambo said. There were no injuries reported.

The Statue of Liberty's crown was closed to the public after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and reopened on July 4, 2009.
