If the fire across the street yesterday wasn’t enough excitement, today we were greeted with a bomb scare just a few blocks north on Vine…
A Los Angeles police bomb squad was sent to remove a “suspicious object” found near a building in Hollywood Wednesday, and traffic was kept away from the area as a precaution, police said.
The object was discovered about 6:35 a.m. in the 1800 block of Vine Street, said Los Angeles Police Officer Kristi Sandoval of the Media Relations office.
The Vine Street offramp from the southbound Hollywood (101) Freeway was closed to keep vehicles from entering the area, Sandoval said. A section of Vine Street was blocked off while the investigation was conducted.
