KY barn blaze turns up bazooka round

Posted: Updated:

MAYFIELD, Ky. (AP) -- Fire officials in western Kentucky found more than charred debris after a barn fire.

Officials told WPSD-TV in Paducah that a bazooka round turned up as crews searched the remnants of the building near Mayfield on Wednesday.

The Paducah Bomb Squad detonated the round.

Officials say the barn owner's son said his late father was an avid garage sale hunter and said the shell may have been part of his collection.

The bomb squad said rounds like the one discovered have not been in use since the Vietnam War.
