Authorities say six homemade bombs found in the Blue Lake area near El Jebel were likely part of a prank.

Deputies from the Eagle County Sheriff's Office were called Thursday after someone found a bottle filled with a liquid. While emptying the bottle, the liquid began bubbling and smoking and authorities were notified.

Several of the devices had already exploded, causing small burn marks. No injuries were reported.

According to the Aspen Daily News (http://tinyurl.com/ae369u5 ), the Grand Junction bomb squad was called to disable an unexploded bomb, which was disposed of without incident.
