Fire officials had said three ticket agents or TSA agents reported eye irritations due to a suspicious powder. That happened at about 6am. The powder was not identified.
The airport remained open and traffic has slowly been getting by outside Terminal B with a lot of activity going on.
FOX 29's Bob Kelly reported there were no delays related to this at Philadelphia International Airport.
