CENTRALIA — Lewis County solid waste workers were pushing garbage into truck trailers at the Centralia transfer station when they came across a hand grenade.

Officer Steve Phipps told KITI Radio it looked like a World War II-style pineapple grenade with a pin in it.

A bomb squad detonated it Saturday at a Chehalis firing range. There was no secondary explosion, so it may have been a disarmed souvenir or a training device.
