The bomb squad was called out to the University Of Denver early Thursday when firefighters found what looked to be artillery shells inside an oven.

The Fire Department responded to an alarm at 2050 East Iliff Ave. around 4:30 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, they found smoke in a science lab.

Firefighters traced the smoke to an oven, and inside they found artillery, according to Kim DeVigil of the Denver Fire Department.

The bomb squad was called out as a precaution.

At 6:45 a.m., firefighters started reopening streets in the area.

Firefighters are now trying to track down the professor of the lab to find out why there were weapons in a science lab oven. After a thorough investigation, the bomb squad determined it was just a "science project gone bad."

Anyone else think that maybe Gwozdecky was trying to blow up the power play?

Sounds like a good idea to me. Anything would help at this point.

If Gwoz was trying to vaporize the power play, he'll need more than artillery. I'd recommend something more drastic. Calling Albert Einstein?

Well at least it wasn't another student burning out a dorm room with his home drug lab kit (happened my freshman year, thankfully I wasn't in that dorm, but it made the national news so my mom called me in a panic)
