SALT LAKE CITY -- The Salt Lake City bomb squad was called out Sunday to take care of a suspicious package near 2800 South and Highland Drive.

Police say it started when someone called in a report about a strange device sitting on the walkway leading up to a vacant home.

"When officers arrived, [they] found a plastic container with a fluid inside of it. [They] also saw some different wires and such running into the fluid," said Salt Lake police Lt. Cal Kunz.

Police evacuated the area, shut down Highland Drive, and then called in the bomb squad and hazmat to take care of the device.

Police aren't yet sure what the device was but say it was not hazardous.
