CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A Clearwater man has found a live grenade sitting atop a water heater at an old family home.

Police said the man took a picture of the grenade before carrying it outside the home Friday. He brought the picture to fire rescue officials to see if it was real. Police sent the bomb squad over to the home and determined it appeared to be a live grenade. They were able to safely dispose of it and no one was injured.

Police said the unidentified man found the grenade at the home where his father used to live. His father, who died a few years ago, was a former member of the military.
