detonation)



FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. - Tuesday afternoon, the Fairchild Air Force Base Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit detonated a grenade that caused parts of downtown Coeur d'Alene to be shut down Monday.

The grenade was discovered Monday by a caregiver who was going through the belongings of a man who recently passed away. The man, not wanting to keep the grenade, decided to take it to police. While en route to meet with police, the man was talking to the family of the man whose grenade it was and they told him it could be 'live' and to immediately pull over and call authorities.

Police met with the man in a parking lot near 6th and Lakeside and he turned the active grenade over to authorities who blocked off a one block radius around parking lot for about three hours Monday afternoon.

The Spokane County Bomb Squad responded to the scene as did crews from Fairchild AFB who returned to the base with the grenade ahead of Tuesday's detonation.

The grenade was detonated about 1 p.m. Tuesday.
