Bomb scare forces evacuation at Buchanan High School

FRESNO, Calif.

This after a staff member found a suspicious device that resembled a pipe bomb on the lawn in front of Buchanan High's 100 Wing just before school was scheduled to begin.

Around 7:45 Wednesday morning, Clovis police closed a portion of Teague Avenue between Minnewawa and Peach avenues and students were moved to other classrooms on campus.

Investigators later discovered the device was a piece of exercise equipment left behind from a class during off-hours.

Students and faculty returned to class about an hour later.
