Two explosive devices have been found this week at two Kent schools, including one that damaged a building, according to the Kent Fire Department.

In the first incident, an explosive device blew a hole in a masonry wall at Lake Youngs Elementary School in the 19600 block of 142nd Avenue Southeast at about 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday. No one was hurt in the explosion, but pieces of masonry were found almost 100 feet away, according to the Fire Department.

On Thursday morning, an unexploded sparkler bomb was found in the parking lot at Glenridge Elementary School in the 19400 block of 120th Avenue Southeast. Fire investigators confirmed that the device was potentially dangerous.

Fire Department officials are warning people not to touch any suspicious devices. Instead, they should stay a safe distance away from the device and call 911.
