AUBURN, Wash. (AP) — Police in the south Seattle suburb of Auburn, Wash., say a woman who stopped at a gas station found an explosive device attached to her car. She called for help Wednesday and the nearby area was temporarily blocked off while a bomb squad responded.

Police Cmdr. Mike Hirman says officers confirmed the item was an improvised explosive device. No one was hurt.

Hirman says the device was inside the car’s fuel hatch. The unidentified Auburn woman placed the device on top of her car, then called police.

A bomb squad neutralized the device.
