CLEARFIELD, Utah (AP) -- Someone detonated a homemade bomb near a church building owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The church was not damaged, and there were no injuries in the late Sunday incident, said Clearfield Police Lt. Greg Krusi.

Officers were called after residents heard a loud bang and saw a large amount of smoke.

Police and a neighbor searched the area and found what they believe was a homemade bomb near the building, which houses Clearfield LDS 6th, 8th and 10th wards.

Krusi said a melted-down liter pop bottle was found with gunpowder inside it.

A white Ford four-door diesel truck was seen leaving the area

Krusi said officers would like to talk to whoever was inside that truck and also anyone who may have information concerning the bomb.
