WARSAW, Ind. (WFFT) -- Police say a pipe bomb exploded during an investigation in the vacant Arnolt Building Wednesday night.
Investigators say a man who identified himself as homeless was walking next to the building when he spotted what appeared to be a pipe bomb on the north end, near Hendricks Street.
Officers responded to the scene and found galvanized metal that was capped on both sides.
There also appeared to be a burned-out fuse attached to it.
Specialists with the Fort Wayne Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal team and ATF traveled to Warsaw and attempted to render the device safe.
As they did the device exploded. No one was injured and the damage was not significant, police say.
The Arnolt Building built cars in the 1940s and on but was vacated over 20 years ago.
It's become an eyesore to some and a place to stay for some of the city's homeless.
Police say they have no suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call Warsaw Police at (574) 385-2210.
