A Vacaville man was airlifted to a hospital on Sunday after a pipe bomb that was hidden in his morning paper exploded, a police spokesman said.
At about 10:20 a.m., Vacaville police received a report of an explosion at Cashel Circle, police spokesman Mark Mazzaferro said.
When officers arrived, they discovered that when a man went out to get his newspaper it exploded.
His condition was not known.
The explosion happened in a cul-de-sac where there are about 15 homes. The residents were taken to a community center.
Travis Air Force Base personnel and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in, as were Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives personnel and the California Highway Patrol’s bomb squad.
At 1:30 p.m., no other devices had been found, but they were continuing to search the area, Mazzaferro said.
