WAYNE, N.J. — Authorities on Wednesday evening were questioning a number of Wayne Valley High School students after removing incendiary devices from school lockers that could have filled the top floor with flames and smoke, police said.

The Passaic County Sheriff's Department Bomb Squad Unit removed four bundles of incendiaries, described as resembling 16 half-sticks of dynamite, from two second-floor lockers, about 20 feet apart, police said. They also recovered a backpack with regular fireworks near the auto shop room on the first floor.
