Bomb scare that shut down Eucalyptus Street determined to be a firework

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A bomb scare forced officials to shut down a stretch of Eucalyptus Street for an investigation Wednesday afternoon.

At about 4:00 p.m., San Bernardino County Fire and Sheriff’s responded to the 16500 block of Eucalyptus Street, just west of Third Avenue, reference a strange object in the street.

“A reporting party found an unknown cylinder with fuses coming out of it on the street close to a residence,” Sheriff’s Spokesman Edgar Moran told Victor Valley News.

When officials arrived onscene they placed orange cones around the object and requested the Sheriff’s Bomb and Arson team to respond.

On Thursday, Moran told Victor Valley News that the object reported turned out to be a fountain-type firework.
