KNOB NOSTER— The Army Corps of Engineers is investigating a former firing range where four unexploded bazooka rounds were found near Knob Noster State Park.

The anti-tank rockets were safely disposed of by military personnel. But the Army Corps plans to scour heavily traveled areas of the former Sedalia Army Air Field Rifle Range for any additional unexploded ordinance.

The firing range operated from 1943 to 1947. Most of the land now is privately owned, though a small portion is located on Knob Noster State Park.
