Officials closed a baggage area at a Phoenix airport late Sunday while they investigated an unattended bag.

Sky Harbor International Airport spokeswoman Heather Lissner says a baggage claim area of Terminal 4 was closed to travelers around 10 p.m.

Police responded and the situation was resolved and operations returned to normal a while later.

Lissner says bomb squad personnel also responded as a precaution.
