Students and staff were evacuated after a pressure cooker was found outside Hialeah Elementary School Thursday morning, officials said.

The cooker was found under a tree about five feet from the kindergarten building at the school at 550 E. 8th Street, school board officials said.

Footage showed students and teachers gathered on outdoor basketball courts away from the building.

A school bus was close to the item and police had the nearby street closed off as a bomb squad and firefighters responded.

The bomb squad detonated the item and it didn't appear to be dangerous.
