A military ordnance was safely detonated Wednesday afternoon in Horry County.

The Horry County Police Department was called to Lake Arrowhead Road for reports of a found item, according to a tweet from the agency.

Officers identified the item as unexploded military ordnance. Because of this, the U.S. Air Force was called in. Working with the HCPD bomb squad, the Air Force safely detonated the ordnance.

"Conway-area residents may have heard a boom sound during the process," a tweet said.

The situation did not pose a risk to the public and the situation has been resolved.
