FLORESVILLE -- Residents living in the 700-block of Fourth Street (U.S. 181 Business) are on edge tonight, following the discovery of a possible explosive device.

Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department said police responded at approximately 9 p.m. after a resident called police. The woman reported that she was doing yard work when she noticed a crawl-space vent cover was missing from the front of the home. She also reported seeing a blinking light.

Police determined that the device could be a pipe bomb, which prompted the evacuation of all residents living within 300 yards of the home. Members of the San Antonio Police Department's bomb squad arrived at the scene at 10:44 p.m.

Traffic on Fourth Street, between Peach and Standish streets, is being diverted.
