FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — If you have a flight leaving from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, you might experience an unusual delay Thursday morning.

All of the entrance roadways to the airport were closed for hours due to suspicious wires in a car, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office.

Deputes were called at 1:10 a.m. regarding suspicious wires found in a vehicle parked on the upper level of the airport. BSO's Bomb Squad responded to the scene and determined that the wires were not a threat.

The airport says travelers are advised to check with their airline for the latest flight status before coming to the airport.
