Newschannel 6 is on the scene of an investigation in Bellevue, where officials have confirmed the presence of an object labeled "high explosive" under a home.

The object, at a resident located near 4th and Ross Street, was discovered just after noon when a remodeling contractor was looking under a porch.

Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons says the area has been cordoned off, but no evacuations have been ordered at this time. He has been in touch with Fort Sill during this investigation.
