Security scare closes parking garage at Orlando International Airport

Bomb squad called over 'inappropriate' comment

Tower at Orlando International Airport.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Operations have returned to normal at Orlando International Airport after a security scare Wednesday night. 

Officials said someone made an "inappropriate comment" in the rental car area of the airport. 

The remake led to the closure of the Terminal B garage as the bomb squad was called in to investigate. 

Airport officials said the garage reopened about an hour later. 

It's unclear if anyone is facing charges.
