HOUSTON – A reported small explosion in a bag at Bush Intercontinental Airport led officers to detonate a piece of luggage, airport officials said. It all started as airport ground crews removed luggage from a flight that just arrived from Amsterdam.
According to the Houston Airport System, it was around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday when a “pop” was heard and smoke could be seen coming from a suitcase. Crews had already offloaded the luggage and placed it on the tarmac when the smoke was seen.
While no injuries or damages were reported, several agencies, including the Houston Fire Department, were called to the scene. Shortly before 4 p.m., police rigged the blue-silver luggage and detonated it on the tarmac, scattering what appeared to be clothes on the ground. Officers then combed through the contents of the bag, but it was not immediately clear if they determined a cause for the earlier smoke. FOX HOUSTON
