Explosive Found on Dam

Posted: Updated:

KEECHELUS DAM, Wash - A small explosive device was found today on the Keechelus Dam.   An employee was making a routine check of the dam when he found a small black powder explosive, usually used to detonate larger explosives.  In a search of the rest of the dam, nothing else was found.  US army personnel say the explosive would'nt have caused damage to the dam but could've injured anyone near.  The device has been destroyed and an investigation is now underway.
