Several pieces of unexploded weapons found at Fort Huachuca
SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) — Fort Huachuca officials say a construction crew found several pieces of unexploded ordnance from the 1950s while they were working on a motor pool project at the base’s Electronic Proving Ground.
An email from the base Public Affairs Office says military police were notified on the unexploded ordnance found Monday and personnel are restricted from that area.
The email says the ordnance disposal team at the Davis-Monthan Air Force declined to remove the devices due to their age.
The Sierra Vista Herald reports a specialist with the Army Corps of Engineers is working to remove the UXOs within the next several weeks.
The area behind the facilities will be off-limit for the time being.
