Platteville homes evacuated due to hand grenade discovery

by

PLATTEVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - An old hand grenade caused a lot of excitement in a Platteville neighborhood early Friday evening.

Police evacuated several homes around 595 Broadway Street when a homeowner going through old belongings found the device.

Traffic was diverted around that location for about three hours.

A crew from Dane County was called and an initial inspection concluded the device likely was an active hand grenade. Residents were allowed to return to their homes after officials removed the grenade.
