BOULDER CITY - Around 5:00 tonight (April 25, 2022), local children were playing in the desert on the northeast side of the community, 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 the device may be a very old military-grade explosive. Three houses have been evacuated, and experts from Nellis Air Force Base are responding. PLEASE AVOID THE AREA UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
