Fort Sill Bomb Techs Called to Falls Storage Facility - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Explosive Found in Falls Storage Facility

Fort Sill bomb technicians are disposing of an explosive device they recovered at a Wichita Falls storage facility.

Wichita Falls Police Department and Wichita Falls Fire Department were called to the scene of the Safe-T Lock facility on Sheppard Access Road for a call on an explosive device that had been found.

Fort Sill bomb techs found what they determined to be a rocket propelled grenade.

During the incident a Captain with the WFFD said the device was isolated and there was never any threat to the public.

We are asking questions about who may have owned the storage unit and whether anyone is being questioned about the device. We'll keep you updated.

That scene has now been cleared and appears to be back to normal.
