The Orlando Police Department announced on Twitter that no shots were fired and no one was injured.

Thankfully, it turned out the mysterious smoke was caused by a lithium battery in a camera exploding inside the bag. He says a complete review of airport response will take place on Monday.

While it was a minor incident, it still caused hours of delays and chaos.

Shortly after 5 p.m. witnesses reported hearing a loud noise inside the main terminal building in front of a TSA security checkpoint to Gates 1-59.

Authorities did not report any injuries from the incident.

Terminals A and B were evacuated, and trams were stopped temporarily, Johnson said. A lithium battery in a camera exploded in a bag; that was the noise people heard.

The checkpoint for gates 70 through 129 was reopened after security sweeps indicated they could be safely reactivated.

After an investigation, the battery responsible for the incident was reported to have been a camera battery, which is legal aboard flights.
