BOULDER CITY, Nev. (KTNV) — Some Boulder City residents were asked to evacuate their houses on Monday according to a tweet sent out from Boulder City after a suspicious device was found that experts believe is a very old military-grade device.

The tweet says around 5 p.m., children were playing in the desert when they found a suspicious device. They brought the device to a nearby house and called Boulder City Police and Fire.

Firefighters requested the bomb squad from Las Vegas. Their experts believe that the device is a very old military-grade explosive. Three houses have been evacuated, and experts from Nellis Air Force Base are responding.
