Bomb and arson detectives say a suspicious package discovered outside Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios in Chicago is harmless.

Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak says security personnel found a dark backpack with wires hanging out of it early Friday in a flower bed near the studios.

Police blocked off nearby streets as bomb and arson detectives investigated early Friday.

Police say the investigation using “remote diagnostics” determined there was no bomb. But police will not say what was in the backpack.

The investigation was completed and the streets reopened a few hours later. The building was not evacuated.
