The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Cincinnati’s Bomb Squad was called to action at the intersection of 3rd Street and Madison Avenue on Saturday. Authorities received a call about a mysterious gas can outside the IRS Gateway in Covington, Kentucky.
After sending a robot to investigate, the threat was an empty gas can and a partially eaten hot dog. The gas can appeared to have wires, which turned out be aluminum foil and strings. Since the items sat outside a government building, the Covington Fire Department called the bomb squad.
