SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KGO) -- A flight at San Francisco International Airport was delayed Wednesday morning after firefighters investigated a strange smell coming from a checked bag.

Firefighters were dispatched twice to the scene; the bag was not located on the first dispatch, but it was ID'd the second time. An inspection by firefighters found that the odor originated from a bottle of hairspray.

Southwest Airlines Flight 2436 was scheduled to depart at 6 a.m. for Chicago Midway International Airport and eventually departed at 7:03 a.m.
