The Miami Police Bomb Squad destroyed a suspicious package found on West Flagler Street and 10th Avenue Thursday morning. This was the second package investigators looked at Thursday - the other was a pressure cooker found on SW 29th Avenue and 25th Terrace. Both sites have been given the all clear.

Authorities _, who were on high alert from the Boston Marathon bombing _ were called to examine two suspicous items in the streets of Miami on Thursday: a bag and a pressure cooker.
In the case of the pressure cooker, a man came forward shortly after authorities responded and claimed it. It had been found on the street in Miami at SW 29th Avenue and 25th Terrace.
Officials said the call came in as a possible prank, but they treated it as a serious case. Authorities did not release any information about the man who claimed the pressure cooker.
Authorities also detonated a black bag found next to a bus stop at West Flagler Street and 10th Avenue. Below is a picture of the package found on West Flagler.
Earlier in the day, a suspicious item, which turned out to a grenade-shaped lighter, forced the evacuation of people at Miami International Airport. Click here for the full story.
