LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Police say three dry ice bombs were found at Los Angeles International Airport Monday night, and one of them exploded.
Authorities responded to a report of a suspicious item around 8:20 p.m. in a restricted area not accessible to the general public near the gate area of the Tom Bradley International Terminal.
The LAPD Bomb Squad was called to the scene. Police said a total of three bottles with dry ice was found. One of the bottles exploded near a ramp.
No injuries were reported. The scene was cleared by 9:45 p.m. and there was minimal impact to airport operations.
This comes a day after dry ice in a bottle exploded in a restroom at LAX Sunday evening, causing some departing flights to be halted for a short period of time.
Sunday's incident happened around 7 p.m. in a Terminal 2 employee restroom that is not accessible to passengers, according to LAX police.
No arrests have been made and there were no stated threats associated to the incidents.
