Officials say the baggage was found in front of 50 Biscayne Blvd, just across the street from Bayfront Park. Miami's bomb squad investigated.

After blowing up the luggage, officials say, the situation was deemed safe.

Biscayne Boulevard was shut down for two hours from Southeast First Street to Northeast First Street in both directions. They have now reopened.
