The FBI this morning released additional information after explosive materials were reportedly found yesterday in a Snohomish County home.

Bomb units were summoned yesterday afternoon after the FBI and representatives from another police agency spotted an explosive device in a neighborhood near Mill Creek. A Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said authorities had been visiting a home in the area as part of an existing investigation when the FBI spotted a suspected explosive device and called in bomb experts to dismantle it.

Neighbors told KOMO-TV they had heard several explosions, and that before each blast, a warning alarm sounded for several seconds.

The FBI this morning said materials were completely removed from the home on 130th Street Southeast and 26th Avenue Southeast with the owner’s cooperation. The FBI says the public was in no danger. 

No arrests are planned, the FBI says.

Spokeswoman Ayn Sandalo Dietrich says the FBI won’t describe the materials
