Bomb at Houston Airport? – UPDATED!

Very few details, but, coming in the wake of the Times Square attack, I have my doubts about coincidence:

Small Luggage Explosion at Bush Airport

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 blue suitcase and were working to remove it when they heard a “pop” and smoke came pouring from it, according to an airport spokeswoman.

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

UPDATE: Turns out the initial reports of an explosion were wrong, or, at least, it wasn’t that kind of explosion. Whew. Whew
