HOMER- Two teenagers have been arrested after allegedly leaving a fake bomb at Homer High School.
   
18-year-old Zachary Fraley and a 16-year-old boy were arrested Thursday after being identified by school officials as those behind the prank.
   
Police say an object looking like an explosive device was left in a stairwell. The school's 370 students were temporarily evacuated Thursday morning.
   
Homer Police Chief Mark Robl says it was a metal coffee can with wires protruding from it. A battery was found inside the can, but police say it wasn't a viable explosive.
   
Fraley was being held at the city jail, and the younger boy was released to his parents. Both face a charge of terroristic threatening.
