Agent Finds Explosives in Home for Sale
April 30, 2013
A real estate professional discovered what appeared to be pipe bombs in a crawl space of a vacant Nashville home that is listed on the market. The agent made the potentially explosive find at 7 p.m. Sunday, and contacted authorities.
More than a dozen neighbors were evacuated from the area as a bomb squad was called out to remove the devices from the home. The bomb squad determined the devices were hazardous. Nearby roadways were also closed for hours.
Authorities told reporters that they believe the devices may be training simulators. The bomb squad will reportedly continue to test the devices, however, to make sure they aren’t explosive.
