An explosive device was discovered in Fairfield Thursday afternoon during an investigation into a pipe bomb explosion in May, police said. On May 27, officers responded to an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive and discovered that a pipe bomb had been detonated under an unoccupied parked vehicle.

The vehicle’s owner had extinguished the flames caused by the explosion with a fire extinguisher before police arrived and the vehicle incurred minor damage, police said. The surrounding area was evacuated as police and experts from the Travis Air Force Base explosive ordinance disposal team ensured that there were no other explosives in the area.

An investigation followed and led officers to issue a search warrant for a location in the 1600 block of Quincy Lane on Thursday at around 2 p.m.

Their search yielded an explosive device and materials for making explosive devices, police said. The device was rendered safe by authorities from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the FBI, and the Yolo County bomb squad. No arrests were made and the investigation is ongoing, according to police
