Department of Corrections: one office firebombed this weekend, another with a bomb threat today…

Two days after two "incendiary devices" were thrown through a window at the state Department of Corrections field office in Bremerton, the department's Longview office was evacuated briefly today after a bomb threat.

A search of the Longview office found nothing, according to the department, and employees returned to work.

The nighttime firebombing of the Bremerton office Saturday caused about $3,000 in damage. No one was injured.

The agency's field offices are where community corrections officers -- formerly called probation officers -- work.
