Old military ammunition device found at Clarksville house

Posted: Updated:

Fort Campbell is sending a team to secure an old piece of unexploded military ordnance discovered Tuesday at an unoccupied Clarksville house.

The device was found about 1:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Elder Street by members of the Clarksville Building Codes Department.

Clarksville police say it is unclear how long the device has been at the home, but it does not appear to be modern-era.

They ask that people avoid the area as crews recover the item.
