A possible destructive device found near an intersection in the Golden Hill area prompted road closures Tuesday morning, though the item ultimately turned out to be harmless.

The bomb squad responded to the intersection of 24th Street and Broadway after the device was found shortly before 1:50 a.m., the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department reported.

Officers shut down Broadway from 23rd to 25th streets and C Street from 23rd to 25th streets while bomb squad personnel scanned the device to determine if it was a threat, according to San Diego police.

The road closures were lifted shortly before 4:30 a.m., Officer Dino Delimitros said.

It was not immediately clear what the device turned out to be.
