BOSTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- The JetBlue airlines area of Logan International Airport's Terminal C in Boston was reopened after authorities cleared a suspicious package from the area.

The area was closed to vehicular traffic for about an hour Sunday night while a bomb squad removed the package, the Boston Globe reported.

State Police Lieutenant Dan Richard said the JetBlue area resumed "normal operations" about 9:40 p.m.

The rest of the terminal was not shut down while the package was investigated, said Massport spokesman Richard Walsh.

Authorities did not say what was found in the package.
