UXO Amid Remains of Missouri House Fire

Caruthersville, Missouri Firefighters encountered unusual debris in their investigation of a house fire they had put out. Cape Girardeau and Sikeston bomb squads and Army EOD unit from Fort Leonardwood responded to the scene where they verified the suspect military ordnance found by the fire crew was an M-29 practice rifle grenade from the Korean War era.

It is unclear how the inert grenade got into the home. The State Fire Marshall is still investigating the incident.
