A bomb squad investigation continues in Franconica, Va. Tuesday morning.

Police were called Monday evening after a realtor sent a cleaning lady to a vacant town home in the 6500 block of Gildar Street. The woman found a box containing nails and wires inside the home.

Fairfax police said the home is currently vacant and for sale.  A neighbor told News4 the homeowner recently moved to Afghanistan.

The county's Explosive Ordnance Unit removed the box and "rendered it safe," according to a police report.  Fairfax County officials did not immediately comment on what was inside the box.
