NEW YORK (AP) - The Port Authority says part of Terminal C at LaGuardia Airport was evacuated as a precaution while law enforcement investigated a report of smoke coming from a bag.

Spokesman Joe Pentangelo said some ramp workers reported the issue shortly before noon Tuesday.

Pentangelo said the bag was moved to a remote location and Delta Flight 5208 was preparing for departure to Richmond, Va.
