Police give the all clear after a suspicious device was found in house fire debris Wednesday evening in a Lampasas neighborhood.

A construction worker who discovered the object while cleaning up the debris reported it to police just after 5:50 p.m. Wednesday.

Police and firefighters responded to the scene in the 800 block of West 1st Street.

According to the department's Facebook post, the house had burned down on Oct. 12.

The construction worker told officers the object he found looked like a homemade explosive device.

Crews blocked off the street in front of the scene and notified neighbors.

Fort Hood's Explosive Ordinance Disposal Company and the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agency also assisted.

Police said the scene was secure and no one was in danger.
