What was considered a “suspicious” suitcase was blown up by a bomb squad early Monday morning at the Burien Transit Center on SW 148th.

According to KING5.com, the suitcase was spotted by a Metro Transit bus driver around midnight. The driver became suspicious when he noticed that the bag was actually chained to a bus schedule sign.

A bomb squad was brought in around 3:25am, and police closed 4th Ave SW between SW 148th and SW 150th. Shortly thereafter, the bomb squad’s robot was used to detonate the suitcase.

Turns out that the suitcase didn’t contain a bomb or anything dangerous – just clothes, which of course will have that oh-so-chic “shredded” look.

There were no injuries, and the transit center and surrounding roads were reopened around 5am.

Here’s some raw video shot at the scene by KING5.com/NWCN:
