    APOPKA. Fla. - Investigators are still working to figure out how a grenade ended up in an Apopka neighborhood.

    Skywitness 9 HD flew over the scene as the Orange County bomb squad detonated the grenade around 5 p.m. Friday.

    Investigators said a maintenance worker found the explosive device in front of a vacant mobile home near Welch Road and Park Avenue.

    Neighbors watched as the bomb squad blew it up.

    "When I saw all this commotion I didn't know what was going on and some said there was a grenade in a mobile home and I said, 'That's pretty scary,'" said area resident Kathy West.

    Neighbors said they see a lot of children playing near the vacant mobile home.
