WE WILL SHOW YOU THAT IN A MINUTE. >>> WE WILL CHECK BACK IN WITH YOU SHORTLY. >>> SEVERAL PEOPLE EVACUATED IN DOWNTOWN ERWIN, AS WELL AS THE FIRE DEPARTMENT ON THIS MAP. I WILL SHOW YOU WHERE THIS IS GOING ON. THIS IS ALL BECAUSE OF CONCERN OVER EXPLOSIVE DEVICE THAT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT IS RIGHT HERE. ALL THE STREETS AND BUSINESSES IN A COUPLE OF HOMES EVACUATED. HERE'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED THE COLLUDING TO THE ERWIN POLICE DEPARTMENT. A GENTLE AND FOUND WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS AN EXPLOSIVE DEVICE IN HIS SHED TONIGHT.
