Tyler Pruett with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office said the scene was cleared after the state bomb squad took what they believe are explosives to be tested. Pruett said no arrests have been made as they work to confirm the material is explosive.

WAAY 31 spent some time talking to neighbors near KC Lane. Some neighbors say the call on explosives is the talk of the neighborhood. WAAY 31 was the first to tell one neighbor about the call. He said he's not concerned. 

"I didn't witness that so it's not like they evacuated us or anything, so it's no concern," said Lou Mozingo. 

Pruett said it is illegal to have certain explosives and pending the results of the investigation, arrests could be made at a later time.
