Authorities say a transient called police after he picked up a backpack with a suspicious device inside.

A bomb squad unit responded to the intersection of Cedar and Belmont and ended up blowing up what turned out to be a pipe bomb. The intersection was closed for several hours until the device was secured.

No one was injured. Authorities say the backpack was left in a dumpster in Downtown Fresno. They are now looking for whoever left the device behind.
