UNION TWP. - The Cincinnati Fire Department bomb squad was called to a park in this western Clermont County community early Friday to inspect a "suspicious device" found on a counter at the park's concession stand.

Union Township Fire Chief Stan Deimling said an employee of the township's service department who was opening up the restrooms near the concession stand found the contraption in Clepper Park about 7 a.m.

It reportedly appeared to be a bottle containing some kind of substance, wrapped in duct tape, with wires and a timing device.

The Union Township Police Department is investigating. There are no suspects in custody. The park reopened Friday afternoon.
