CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - Some residents of Canon City were forced to evacuate for several hours after some kind of military-style device was found in the Arkansas River.

Police say the cylindrical device found Sunday had a fuse but not a warhead.

Residents of 19 homes were told to evacuate at around 8:30 p.m. A team from Fort Carson and the Pueblo bomb squad detonated the device just after midnight and residents were allowed to return.
