TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police are in a midtown Tucson neighborhood investigating possible explosions over the weekend.

The investigation is in the 700 block of North Richey Boulevard, near East Speedway Boulevard and North Alvernon Way. 

According to police, detectives from the Special Investigations Division are conducting a follow-up investigation regarding a possible pipe bomb or similar type of explosion that occurred a few days ago in the yard of a residence in that area.

While there this morning, police learned of a similar incident that may have occurred in the same area on Sunday night.

No one was injured in either of these incidents and there is no known danger at this time, police say.
