LAKEWOOD, Wash.—Police say about 50 people were evacuated from homes and businesses near a portable toilet where a sanitation worker found an explosive in Washington state.

Lakewood Assistant Chief Mike Zaro says the evacuations Friday morning were a precaution while a bomb squad safely destroyed what looked like a pipe bomb.

The fuse apparently went out and it did not detonate.
