Bomb Squad Searches Cargo Area At SD Airport

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A United Airlines cargo facility at San Diego's
Lindbergh Field has gotten the all clear after a suspicious container was determined to be safe.

A dog trained to detect explosives identified the container this afternoon during a routine sweep, prompting the evacuation of about
35 people who work in and around the facility for at least three hours.

An airport spokesman says a Fire Department bomb squad examined
the crate and found that it contained aircraft parts from London.

Officials say they don't know why the dog identified the container.

No passenger flights were affected.
