WARDEN, Wash. -- Law enforcement officials are investigating a suspected bombing incident which destroyed a car last night in Warden.

Emergency responders were dispatched around 11:15 p.m. Saturday August 7 to Lamb Weston/BSW LLC, 1203 Basin St., Warden. Lamb Weston/BSW is a frozen potato supplier. The sound of an explosion had been heard throughout the town, and a plant security guard reported a car had exploded in the parking lot.

Arriving responders discovered in the employee parking lot a vehicle with its windows blown out. Investigators determined the damage was caused by the detonation of an improvised explosive device which had been planted inside the vehicle.

The vehicle has now been removed from the scene and secured as evidence.

There were no injuries, and no other vehicles or structures were damaged.

It is uncertain who planted the device, or why the vehicle or the vehicle's owner was targeted.

This incident is under investigation by the Warden Police Department; U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Grant County Sheriff's Office.
