The FBI requested assistance from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and a county hazardous-materials team about 7:15 a.m. while gathering evidence at the house in the 1600 block of Via Corona as part of an ongoing investigation, said Davene Butler, a spokeswoman for the federal agency.

FBI bomb technicians were on scene as a precaution and safely handled the apparent pipe bomb, along with other suspicious materials, Butler said.

The spokeswoman said she could reveal no further details about the case because the search warrant had been sealed by a judge.
