It's the Bomb.... Squad

The bomb squad showed up at the fire station across from our church... during church.  Many police cars blocked the roads leading to the fire station.  Many police and fire trucks were on standby.  Many fire fighters, police and bomb squad people (?) were there too.

Turns out that someone had purchased a device from an estate sale and brought it to the fire station out of caution.

Firefighters took the device to a vacant lot nearby and called on the department's Bomb Squad to investigate.

Upon further investigation, they realized the device was a World War II training bazooka rocket. They also determined it was harmless, since there were no explosives inside because it was a training round.
