San Francisco police and bomb squad members are at 20th Avenue and Balboa Street in the city’s Richmond District, where suspicious packages were found in front of two homes this morning, a fire department spokeswoman said. Officers have set up a perimeter and evacuated the two homes, located at 669 and 670 20th Ave., fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said. Talmadge said “some sort of bottles containing some liquid” were found outside the two homes, which are across the street from each other. The devices were reported at 9:28 a.m., and the residents of the two homes, as well as some neighbors, have been evacuated as a precaution while the bomb squad and a hazardous materials team investigate, Talmadge said.
