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.

No arrests have been made and there were no stated threats associated to the incidents.
