WELLFEET, Mass. — A nearly explosive situation on Cape Cod over the weekend was quelled by both members of the United States Military and Massachusetts State Police.
The U.S. Navy and the state police bomb squad detonated several unexploded World War I era ordnances on Saturday after the explosives were found on a Wellfleet resident’s property, according to a statement from the town’s fire department.
Wellfleet firefighters responded shortly before 3:40 p.m. to a report of the newly discovered unexploded ordnances, the department said.
WBZ reported that the resident who found the explosives was digging on his property as part of a driveway expansive project. more
