Huachuca City Police lifts home evacuation after false alarm

Huachuca City Police responded to a suspicious item located on Skyline Drive which turned out to be a false alarm.

Police set up a staging area at 625 Skyline Drive and some homes were evacuated after a man made a reference to finding an explosive at the back of his home.

According to police, the man ran to his neighbor to tell him to evacuate. Police say the man was not cooperative with them and that they have dealt with him in the past.

The evacuation was lifted for about 50 families around 10:30 p.m.

According to the Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross, they were asked to provide care services for up to 20 families in Huachuca City.

Those families were temporarily evacuated by the police department. The Red Cross delivered food to 625 N. Skyline Drive in Huachuca City.

We will have more details once they become available.
