A bomb scare briefly shut down the Delta Air Lines terminal Friday at San Francisco International Airport, officials said.

In its Twitter feed, San Francisco International Airport said that Boarding Area C, which serves Delta and Frontier Airlines flights, had been evacuated and closed due to a suspicious package at the security checkpoint. Authorities also closed the upper-level roadway at the airport and urged both arriving and departing passengers to use the lower roadway.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the suspicious package was found at 11:30 a.m. Authorities said membes of the San Francisco Police Department's bomb squad were investigating.

The bomb squad cleared the scene shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to airport officials.
