Reports of a suspicious package forced the closure of an area inside a terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta on Wednesday.

The airport tweeted that an area near a baggage carousel in the South terminal was blocked as officers investigated the incident. The incident happened around 7:15 p.m. 

The all-clear was eventually given and operations resumed as scheduled.

It is unclear what the suspicious package contained.
