PROVIDENCE — Multiple state and federal police agencies responded to a Providence home after "explosive material" was found in a home and a man was injured. 

On Tuesday, police and medics in Cache County were called to a home on a medical call after a 22-year-old was injured, according to a press release from the Cache County Sheriff's Office. 

The press release did not specify what injuries the man sustained. A call and email made to Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen were not returned as of Wednesday evening. 

When the "explosive material" was discovered, the Cache Valley Bomb Squad was called to the scene. Later, agents from the FBI and ATF were called to the scene "due to the nature of the material found," according to the press release. 

Nearby homes were briefly evacuated while police were in the area, but were later able to return when law enforcement deemed the area to be safe. 

Police say the investigation will be ongoing for "the next few days."

Two roads near the scene will be closed to the public and only local traffic will be allowed through. The closed roads consist of 125 North at 400 East in Providence and Bluff Street between Spring Creek Parkway and 280 North, according to the press release. 

As an additional precaution, the nearby Center for Creativity, Innovation and Discovery Charter School will be closed on Thursday as authorities continue to investigate the area.
