    Fire crews got a big surprise Sunday evening while they were working to contain a brush fire near Liberty Park on Spokane’s South Hill. Crews were able to quickly contain the fire, but while cleaning up during overhaul, they discovered what is believed to be a landmine. Text on the device read, “Face toward enemy.” Officials say the device is a Claymore Mine, and the fire burned right over it. They did not know if it was still active or how long it had been there. A Spokane bomb squad was called scene around 7 p.m., but an hour later, officials called in the Fairchild Air Force Base bomb squad because the mine is a military device.

    I'm surprised they didn't find some jackass in last stand.
