FITCHBURG -- Police evacuated some Hazel Street residents Monday evening after receiving a call about alleged pipe bombs, although the devices turned out harmless, according to Sgt. Mark Jackson.
The devices were hydrogen fuel generator cells that a resident had purchased on the Internet, he said.
"Allegedly, you can boost the fuel economy of your vehicle with these devices," Jackson said.
A State Police bomb squad and the FBI assisted in the investigation, he said.
The report came from an anonymous 911 caller, Jackson said. "The owner of the devices (was) located and he explained to us what they were," he said.
