Friday, May 4, 2018, at approximately 10:00Am, Kingsford Public Safety was assisted by the MI State Police Bomb Squad from Gaylord MI. KPSD has been contacted by a home owner on the 100 block of Balsam St. and advised they had found “blasting caps” in a home that they had recently purchased and were cleaning out.
The home owners were advised to not touch or disturb the blasting caps and to leave the residence. KPSD contacted the MSP Bomb Squad who arrived on scene, removed the items from the house, to be destroyed in a controlled blast.
KPSD would like to remind anyone that if they come into contact with suspicious items, that they believe to be explosive, to leave them alone and call 911.
