Eau Claire (WQOW) - An Eau Claire family got a surprise while cleaning out the attic of the home they had just moved into.

Police were called to the home on Laurel Avenue Monday evening when the family discovered what appeared to be an old military explosive device.

Police contacted the regional bomb squad out of Wausau. They tell WQOW News 18 that it was an old military munition, which appeared to be live. Bomb squad technicians were not able to tell what era it was from. The device was transported to the police department shooting range, where it was safely detonated.
