Officials from multiple agencies were called to the North County Saturday to investigate a pipe bomb reportedly discovered in a rural area near San Pasqual Valley Road.
Crews from the San Diego Fire Department and San Diego Police Department made their way to the 17900-block of Bandy Canyon Road at Old Survey Road just before 11 a.m.
Assistance was also requested from the Metro Arson Strike Team (MAST).
The pipe bomb appeared to be in the middle of some kind of fruit grove. By 2 p.m., officials had safely detonated the device and were beginning to clear the scene.
No injuries were reported.
Officials have not released details about how the explosive device got there in the first place. The incident is under investigation.
