The committee at continued from page 1 responded to the location on the 6800 block of South Thomas Mallen just before 9 p.m., along with the county's explosives disposal unit. After securing the area, SCSO spokesman Dep. Mark Gregory said the disposal unit approached the device and eventually "disrupted" it - the tech- nical term for detonations - around midnight. "The boom was so stinking loud, I couldn't believe it," Grimmett said. Gregory was reluctant to go into too much detail on what the device was so as not to "give people ideas." "Officially, it looked like somebody was messing around with fireworks, experimenting, trying to make something bigger," he said. Gregory stressed that not only are fireworks illegal in the county, but that the fire danger remains very high, and anything that could kindle a blaze should be avoided. Grimmett also noted that there had been a small fire, which was quickly extinguished, near the site about four days prior. Gregory praised Grimmett on how she dealt with the discovery. "She did the right thing," he said. "Call and report, but don't mess with it."
