Walter Reed Drive has been shut down between S. 13th and 14th Streets due to police and fire department activity.

A grenade might have been found in a storage unit in the area, according to Arlington County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Gregg Karl.

The road has been closed as a precaution while authorities wait for the bomb squad to examine the object.

    Just saw a bomb squad truck on Columbia pike. I’m going lock my doors and stay in the basement.

      Yes, locking to doors would certainly help.

      Don’t forget to place a sofa or other large piece of furniture behind the door to keep the grenade from blasting through the door.

    Looks like all is well – they just reopened the road.
