Portions of Hanscom Air Force Base in MA have been evacuated due to concerns about a truck.
They said only that there was a "concern" during the vehicle inspection at a base gate that made the Big Foot moving truck "suspicious".
A police K9 also found traces of potential explosives, said State Police Maj. The state police bomb squad has responded and its Air Wing is on scene as well. Namely, the truck belonged to Big Foot Moving and Storage, which was stopped at a gate. The company declined comment when contacted by MassLive.
The base temporarily closed the Vandenberg Route 2A Gate and has evacuated nearby facilities.
The State Police later added that the vehicle involved is a moving truck, and that officers have set up a perimeter extending 1,500 feet from the truck in all directions.
An exit from Route 2A, a major roadway leading to the base, is closed while authorities investigate.
Hanscom Field, a civilian airport adjacent to the base, remained in operation throughout the incident, according to the Massachusetts Port Authority, which operates the commercial facility. Sources told WBZ-TV's Cheryl Fiandaca that the driver of the truck is still on scene.
No injuries were reported, and the investigation remains ongoing.
In a statement, the 66th Air Base Group said the truck had been cleared and personnel who had been ordered to leave Hanscom Air Force base earlier in the day were being allowed to return.
There is privatized housing on the base, with a total of 731 homes. The base spans land in Concord, Bedford and Lincoln.
