Several roads have been closed in the area, including State Route 2 between Icicle and East Leavenworth roads, with drivers asked to avoid the location.

An evacuation was ordered in downtown Leavenworth, Washington State, after a man told a 911 dispatcher that he had put an explosive device in a rubbish bin, local Seattle channel KOMO News reported citing local authorities.

​The area was searched by police and sniffer dogs, and later a bomb squad arrived in the area to deal with the suspected explosive device. 

​Social media users took to Twitter to say how amazed they were to learn that such a small town - a population of 2,010 and built in a Bavarian style - was being evacuated because of a bomb threat, especially during the Christmas holidays. 

​This bomb threat comes days after a man detonated a blast in downtown Nashville, an explosion that left three people injured on Christmas Day and causes damage to dozens of buildings.
