    A student took a homemade firework device to Bethesda Chevy Chase High School Thursday morning, according to Montgomery County Public Schools.

    Students found a device like a homemade M-80 in a science lab.

    The classroom was evacuated and swept by a K-9. K-9 also checked nearby hallways. No other devices were found.

    The student, who did not make a threat or attempt to use the device, will be disciplined, according to MCPS.

    Montgomery County fire and police officials are investigating.
