Southwest Airlines says evacuation 'false alarm'

DALLAS (AP) - A Southwest Airlines spokesman says a suspicious device found on an airplane caused Dallas Love Field to be evacuated for nearly an hour before authorities determined it was a false alarm.

Paul Flaningan said Sunday a Southwest crew member found the device on an empty plane getting ready to fly to Amarillo. Flaningan said he didn't know what the device was but that the owner came back to retrieve it.

Flaningan said Love Field was closed for nearly 45 minutes and the airport was up and running again.
