    A suspicious vehicle abandoned in Times Square that appeared to contain materials that could be used to make an improvised bomb triggered a massive police response and a partial evacuation of New York City's theater district.
    Part of New York City's Times Square area was evacuated Saturday, May 1, after a suspicious vehicle was found there on fire.

    Police activity was going on for more than three hours, and investigators said they were taking the situation seriously.
    According to mutiple sources, however, the situation was still fluid.
    Conflicting reports were coming in to police officials as to what exactly was suspicious about the vehicle and its contents.
    Some reports noted the vehicle was on fire. Others noted it contained metal boxes.
    According to one account, the vehicle was driven into Times Square, was left with its flashers on and then the driver left.
    After the fire in the vehicle was reported at around 6:35 p.m., police closed off an area in Times Square near 44th Street and 7th Avenue.

    Reuters quoted a New York Fire Department official as saying the vehicle was found to contain explosives, gasoline, propane and burned wires. The officer, who did not give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said a man was seen fleeing the vehicle.

    An officer noticed a box in the car with smoke coming out of it. No confirmation that it is a bomb, they did find propane cylanders and gas cans in the car.

    New York City Police Close Times Square for Possible Car Bomb

    Police said Saturday the bomb squad was investigating the contents of the car on 45th Street

    Police have closed some streets in New York City's Times Square as they investigate a car that has been "deemed suspicious."

    An official tells Fox News that a dark SUV was found to have what initial reports indicated was a "failed incendiary device," including gasoline, propane and wires.

    The area is now secure, with immediate areas closed off.

    A man was seen running from the vehicle, but authorities have not been able to find or identify him.
