Traffic around Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the site of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, was hectic for a short time Friday as firefighters examined a suspicious package.
But the surrounding roads reopened this morning, after bomb squad investigators determined the package was a suitcase with nothing harmful inside.
The Orlando Fire Department kept residents updated through a series of tweets, ultimately concluding that no hazard was found and that roads were reopening around 10 a.m.
Businesses around the nightclub were evacuated for a short time as a precaution. The one-year mark of the Pulse nightclub massacre is nearing, and commemorative events at the nightclub are taking place in less than two weeks.
Forty-nine people were killed and dozens more were injured after gunman Omar Mateen started shooting inside the packed nightclub last June 12. Mateen was killed in a shootout with police.
