Authorities in Clovis say two bottle bombs exploded at Buchanan High School's Veterans Memorial Stadium Thursday afternoon.
The Clovis Police Bomb Squad was called to the stadium at Nees and Minnewawa around 3 p.m. after school district employees found several suspicious plastic bottles in the bleachers.
The Bomb Squad said it located six bottles, two of which had already exploded. Police deactivated the other four.
An officer at the scene said an explosive chemical mixture and something that looked like aluminum foil was in the bottles.
The Buchanan football team was about to start practice when the first bottle blew up. Players were forced to wait outside the stadium gates while officers collected the bottles and cleared the area. The team hit the field about an hour and a half later.
No one was hurt.
The incident remains under investigation.
