Fairfield police said a pipe bomb exploded under an unoccupied  vehicle parked in an apartment complex parking lot on Phoenix Drive early this morning. The 1 a.m. explosion in the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive started the vehicle on fire, Lt. Randall Boggs said. The vehicle owner extinguished the flames with a fire extinguisher before police arrived, Boggs said. The blast caused minor damage to the vehicle’s undercarriage. The Travis Air Force Base Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team evacuated the surrounding neighborhood and searched the area for other explosives, Boggs said. No injuries were reported and evidence was collected at the scene, Boggs said. The Yolo County Bomb Squad and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also investigating the incident, Boggs said.
