DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. (AP) Members of the Prince George's County fire department's bomb squad are entering a District Heights home to investigate suspicious items that officials say have "all the components" of explosive devices.

Spokesman Mark Brady said Wednesday evening that the residents of the two-story red brick, single-family home in the 5800 block of Kentucky Avenue had recently been evicted.

Brady told The Associated Press that a property manager had entered the home after the eviction, saw the packages and notified the authorities.

Brady says the devices appear to be either actual explosives or "hoax" explosives. He was not able to provide any information about the evicted residents.
