Woman finds grenade while cleaning out SC house


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — A woman cleaning out a vacant home in Spartanburg found what authorities think was a World War II-era grenade in a box in the attic.

The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1j0bei7) police, firefighters and the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office bomb squad responded shortly after a call came in Friday.

Janice Doyle said her parents built the home in 1961, and it's been vacant since Doyle's mother died five years ago. She and her friends and neighbors from Columbia were cleaning out the home to put it up for sale, As they took boxes from the attic, they found the grenade.

Spartanburg police Capt. Regina Nowak said officers weren't sure if the grenade was live, but she said the bomb squad would dispose of it.
