NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A bomb squad determined a device discovered in Montgomery County was not explosive.

The Clarksville Police Department responded to a bomb scare in a neighborhood along Airport Road Friday night.

A homeowner told police her children found what looked like a homemade bomb between her yard and her neighbor's yard.

Investigators say the circular object covered in black electrical tape with a fuse sticking out looked like a homemade bomb.

The Montgomery County bomb squad removed the object and took it to a safe location for examination, where they confirmed it was not an explosive device.

Police have not released any further information.
