MILL CREEK. -- Bomb squads from the FBI, Washington State Patrol and Snohomish County Sheriff's Office descended on a home in the Seattle Hill-Silver Firs neighborhood Monday afternoon, and witnesses reported hearing several explosions.
A number of homeowners in the area of 130th Street Southeast and 26th Avenue Southeast say they were evacuated sometime after 4:30 p.m. as law enforcement agents massed in the neighborhood.
The FBI's Ayn Dietrich confirmed that agency bomb techs were at the home, but wouldn't say if they discovered any explosives. However, witnesses in the area reported hearing several explosions.
Before each blast, a warning alarm sounded for several seconds, followed by the explosion.
