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."
