BURBANK (CBSLA.com) — A suspicious package that prompted the closure of the Burbank Metrolink Station on Wednesday turned out to be a backpack with no explosives, according to a station spokeswoman.

A security guard found the package around 5 p.m.

The station was closed down for about an hour.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad deemed the area safe.
