HOUSTON - A small explosion occurred in a piece of luggage at Bush Intercontinental Airport, according to officials. No injuries were reported.

Smoke was seen coming from the luggage shortly after it was unloaded off a jet around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Houston Airport System. The jet had just landed at the airport from Amsterdam.

Ground crews said they noticed something strange about a suitcase and were working to remove it when they heard a "pop" and smoke came pouring from it.

While no injuries were reported, several agencies, including the Houston Fire Department, were called to the scene.

Aerial views from SkyFox showed a couple dozen officers and emergency responders at the scene. The blue-silver suitcase was sitting on the tarmac several yards from officers and other aircraft.

The flight number and airline on which the luggage was carried were not immediately confirmed, and no further information was available.

There were no reports of any damage due to the explosion.


If this turns out to be a bad laptop battery, I'm going to be very bemused. And if not, slightly scared.
