Deputies blow up 2 grenades found in Christmas
Children playing in a yard in rural Christmas Saturday found a live, rusty grenade, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.
The 10-year-olds told a parent, who called deputies at about 2 p.m., sheriff's Lt. Paul Hopkins said.
At about 5 p.m., the sheriff's bomb squad blew up the grenade, which deputies think was at least 30 years old. Then they found a second grenade and detonated it, too.
The Sheriff's Office plans to notify the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers so the agency can investigate whether the area was used in military training and more grenades may be on that land. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-grenade-fort-christmas-road-20121124,0,5698155.story
