Channel 4 is at the scene of a bomb squad call on the west side.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office told Channel 4 that a man in the neighborhood located off Cassie Road found some sort of military ordnance Thursday night and contacted authorities.

Police have not said specifically what that device is.

A bomb squad was called to the scene; they removed the device and are taking it to be rendered safe.

Homeowners were evacuated for a short period Thursday night and are now back in their homes.
