    Authorities respond to reports of a suspicious device in Hollywood.

    A suspicious package found in a Hollywood park Thursday morning turned out to be used fireworks, officials said.

    The item was found shortly before 9 a.m. in the 1500 block of Jefferson Street near Jefferson Park, according to Hollywood Fire Rescue officials.

    About 10 homes were evacuated after a passer-by found the device and flagged down a police officer.

    According to officials, the device looks like a couple of cylinders held together by duct tape.

    The bomb squad was called to the scene and determined the package didn't pose any danger.
