An item that resembled a film prop was found Wednesday in a Burbank residential neighborhood not far from two movie studios, prompting evacuations before explosives experts determined it was harmless.
A bomb squad was sent to remove the item, which reportedly looked like a pipe bomb, after it was discovered about 7:30 a.m. in the 200 block of Hollywood Way, said Burbank police Sgt. Derek Green.
Some apartments and condominiums were evacuated and a stretch of Hollywood Way was closed to traffic before the area was declared safe after about three hours, he said.
The neighborhood is not far from Burbank Studios and Warner Bros.
