Bomb squad explodes military bomb at Fort Funston 

Fort Funston is open again after a bomb squad detonated a leftover military bomb someone found along the rugged coastal park south of Ocean Beach on Sunday afternoon.

The bomb was discovered in the stretch of the headland that belongs to the National Park Service just after noon, according to the Police Department.

U.S. Park police closed a perimeter for a couple hours so they could set it off, according to the park service.

No one was injured.

“It was safe. It just takes just a couple minutes,” Golden Gate National Recreation Area spokesman Michael Feinstein said. “They know what they’re doing.”
