BOSTON (WHDH) - The bomb squad was called to a fire station in Boston Tuesday morning after someone brought a possibly explosive device to the station.

Around 11 a.m. Tuesday, a person drove to the Engine 14 firehouse in Boston with what appeared to be an old military mortar in the back seat of a car.

According to Boston Fire, the captain decided to evacuate the firehouse and set up a safety zone while Boston Police were called.
