GREENFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio sheriff says a suspected pipe bomb exploded at a campground, and a second device found by a camper was neutralized by a bomb squad.

Ross County Sheriff George Lavender tells radio station WTVN in Columbus that one of the suspected pipe bombs detonated around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, and a camper found a similar device in his burn barrel at Paint Creek State Park camping area. No injuries were reported.

The campground about 50 miles southwest of Columbus was locked down while investigators with a bomb-sniffing dog searched dozens of campers. Authorities haven't said whether they've determined who is responsible for the devices.

They were made of foot-long metal pipes with end caps. The one handled by the bomb squad was sent to a lab for testing.
