SEPTA police are investigating three suspicious devices found along the Broad Street line near Lombard South Station.No injuries have been reported. Sources tell Action News that the devices resemble classic "bottle-bomb-devices."

Investigators say chemicals recovered at the scene from inside the bottles were caustic and not explosive.

One device was found at 8:00 am Tuesday and two others were found at 8pm Tuesday night.

Authorities say the devices were left next to train tracks and not on Septa platforms.

Traffic along the Broad Street line is running without delay as the investigation continues.
