An Alabama man who took a boy hostage in an underground bunker for days had two explosive devices ready to detonate, the FBI said Tuesday, the Miami Herald reports.

The FBI also revealed that a firefight ensued as FBI agents rushed the bunker to save the boy who turns 6 today.

The Herald wrote that one of the bombs was in the bunker, while the other was in a plastic tube through which negotiators were speaking to the suspect, Jimmy Lee Dykes.

FBI special agent Jason Pack said Dykes “reinforced the bunker against any attempted entry by law enforcement.”

The devices were never detonated.

The boy is reportedly doing well, the Miami Herald reported.
