Sheriff’s office: Silverdale home cleared, roads reopening after threat

SILVERDALE, Wash. -- Authorities have reopened streets in Silverdale after a threat involving possible explosives on Friday.

Streets in the Ridgeview and Peony Place neighborhoods were closed Friday after Kitsap County deputies say they were called to help a "person in crisis" who fired a gun.

That person was taken into custody, and officials later learned there might be explosives in the home on Peony Place NW.

A bomb squad was called to the area and obtained a search warrant to enter the home, officials said.

The sheriff's office said on Facebook that investigators recovered "hazardous materials" and chemicals from the home.  Officials said they were reopening roads and that the area was safe.

Multiple agencies, including the FBI and the state patrol, were also involved with the investigation, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office.
