City officials, business leaders and a handful of residents on Tuesday celebrated the grand opening of the first high-end rental home complex in Burbank in 25 years. Empire Landing officially opened with more than 40% of the 276 units already leased. Representatives for the complex said they hope to attract a variety of residents, including people who already live in Burbank and those who are looking for resort living, or who no longer wish to commute — even temporary studio workers who might not stay long, said Barbara Casey, a spokeswoman for the developer, Casden Properties.

The Aircraft Rescue Firefighting vehicle picked up speed and headed west in front of the Bob Hope Airport fire station Thursday morning while a crowd of youngsters waited patiently. Then, as it reached the group, it sprayed water over their heads, igniting shrieks of delight as the youngsters threw their hands up into the air and ran this way and that. The kids were from the Summer Daze Express camp run by the Burbank Parks Recreation and Community Services out of Robert Gross Park, just down the street from the airport.

Ben Godar Police acting on an anony- mous tip Monday closed a runway at Burbank-Glendale- Pasadena Airport, along with a nearby street and a section of railroad track while they searched a truck for explosives. The threat turned out to be a hoax related to a labor dispute. CHP officials received word Saturday from an anonymous caller that a truck carrying explosives from Texas would arrive at the airport sometime Monday morning, police said. About 3 a.m. Monday, a security guard for a movie equipment storage lot near the airport noticed the truck parked near the corner of San Fernando Boulevard and Clybourn Avenue and called Airport Police.

Bob Hope Airport officials are ready to submit to federal authorities a key environmental assessment of plans for a new $130-million transportation center. The center will connect to the nearby train station, upgrade rental car facilities and generate solar energy. The public-comment period on the report closed Friday, and as of Friday afternoon, no input had been received, an airport spokeswoman said. The study now goes to the Federal Aviation Administration, which is expected to post its comments in 30 days — the final step in clearing the project for construction.
