UNION, NJ – An all clear has been declared at the Union Train Station after a Union County Bomb Squad investigation of a suspicious package Thursday morning.  

The call prompted suspension of service and the closing of Morris Avenue from Lehigh to North Avenues.

According to authorities, the package was an unattended backpack.  The potential threat came hours after an unknown item exploded inside a trash can in Barnegat.  No injuries were reported in that event.
