Live Grenade Found by Texas Roofers on the Job

TEXAS CITY, Texas (AP) - Workers removing a roof in Texas nearly
had the job done for them by accident.

Police in Texas City said a construction crew found a live World War II-era hand grenade in the attic of a home Thursday.

Police say an FBI bomb technician was called and the grenade was
detonated at a shooting range with no injuries.

Doug Johnson says he bought the house in 1992. It's more than 50
years old.

The roof was being replaced because of damage from Hurricane Ike last year.
