MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

Mobile Police Department's explosive ordinance disposal team responded to West Mobile Thursday night. 

Sources within the department said a truck driving on Airport Boulevard caught on fire. It pulled into the fire station near the airport for help. The truck was carrying an antique RPG round, possibly from World War II. 

The department believes the RPG is a "dummy round," but the explosive ordinance disposal team was called as a precaution. No injuries were reported.
