LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A bomb squad removed what turned out to be a harmless item found near the Israeli Consulate in the Miracle Mile area.

The explosives experts were sent to the 6300 block of Wilshire Boulevard about 8:30 a.m., said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations office.

No evacuations were ordered, and no threat was made in connection with the item.

Authorities said a section of Wilshire Boulevard was closed until the bomb squad declared the area safe about 10 a.m. No explosives were found.
