Posted Updated

FAYETTEVILLE — March 22, 1996 - 4:40 p.m. EST

When a Fayetteville rental agent went to show a house to a prospective tenant Thursday, he found one explosive feature he hadn't counted on.

In one of the closets in the Scottsdale subdivision house was a live Army rocket, armed and ready to blow.

It was the type of rocket used in Army training exercises.

Fort Bragg's explosives unit has since defused and destroyed the rocket
