Update: Live mortar round detonated in the Rich Hill area!

Courtesy of the Bates County Sheriffs Office:

If you are in the Rich Hill area a short time ago you would have heard a large explosion.

Everything is ok and that explosion was controlled by the US Army Bomb squad from Ft Riley Ks.

They detonated a live mortar round found earlier today. It’s reported that this was originally found approximately a year ago and placed on a shelf and forgotten.

The area has been deemed safe and emergency crews are currently clearing the area.
