[X967, El Dorado County Sheriff's Office]

On 07/29/18 at approximately 1830 hrs, EDSO deputies responded to a report of a possible explosive device on the edge of the roadway in the 4000 block of Forni Rd. Deputies arrived and located a back pack, which was smoking and had wires protruding from inside. 

The "device" was inspected by EDSO bomb technicians. Our bomb technicians located no electronic or explosive components and determined someone attempted to light the back pack on fire for unknown reasons.
