The Ashland Bomb Squad was called Thursday morning to a home on Rowland Ave in Mansfield, after a man found what looked to be some sort of military type bomb. Mansfield Police evacuated the area and called in the Bomb Squad to see if it was active.


The Ashland County Bomb Squad collected the device and removed it from the premises. The mortar round was found to be a luminary shell used to light up a battle field and did not contain explosives. No other suspicious devices were located on the property.
