LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — The bomb squad was called to a house in unincorporated Larimer County on Sunday morning after the new residents found some suspicious items in the garage.

The homeowners were clearing out items that were left behind at the home in the 13000 block of Appaloosa Avenue near Wellington when they made the discovery, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies went to check it out and ended up calling the Northern Colorado Bomb Squad.

The bomb squad collected four items it described as “small homemade explosives” or “modified fireworks.”

No one was hurt. The bomb squad later determined there was no danger to the public.

The sheriff’s office is investigating.
