(UPI) -- A terminal at Miami International Airport was shut down after a bomb-sniffing dog detected something there around 7 a.m. Wednesday.

All planes were diverted away from terminal J while the bomb squad investigated the area and the pallet the dog pointed them to. Airport security evacuated the second and third levels of the terminal.

An all-clear was given around 8:30 a.m., when the airport reopened the concourse. One arrival and departure were delayed for about 30 minutes as a result of the evacuation.
