Two explosive devices found near Blue Heron Lake in South Jeffco spurred the evacuation of 12 homes Tuesday morning.
The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office and West Metro Fire Rescue evacuated the homes in the 10700 block of West Berry Place as a precaution when the first device was discovered, sheriff’s spokesman Mark Techmeyer said.
The devices were made out of plastic bottles and fireworks. Authorities detonated the two devices along the trail near Blue Heron Lake, Techmeyer said. No one was injured.

A feverish crime spree on a dog-day afternoon ended abruptly in the westbound lanes of I-70 on Wednesday when a Jeffco sheriff's deputy brought a suspect to heel on the busy highway.
All told, the carjacking/burglary rampage involved four vehicles and three homes, sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley said. It ended dramatically near the Genesee exit when Deputy Fred Haggett tackled the male suspect, who had just surrendered two weapons after terrorizing passing motorists on I-70.
