A Burbank neighborhood was evacuated late yesterday afternoon when deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's bomb squad were on hand to remove "what appears to have been an old military explosive" from inside a home, according to LA Now. Residents of the home on the 1100 block of Rose Street "found the heavy metal object" in the attic, which they thought belonged to the previous occupant, who neighbors say "was related to a collector of military items." No other military objects were found in the home, and the bomb squad safely removed the unexploded device.
