SITKA — An Army ordnance disposal team has found no live explosives after a pair of detonator wires was discovered in Sitka.
The Daily Sitka Sentinel reported the wires were traced to a hole created in a rock-blasting project 30 years ago.
The Army team led the investigation and would have disposed of explosives if any had been found during the hours-long operation Saturday. The wires were discovered Friday just off Lance Drive.
Sitka police and fire departments, as well as public works crews, assisted in the response.
