Authorities in Hot Springs said a live cannonball was discovered just outside of a local business Thursday.

According to city spokeswoman Terry Payne, the live cannonball believed to be dated back to the Civil War era was reported just before 10 a.m.
 

Traffic was diverted from the area and two businesses were also ordered to evacuate.

The Arkansas State Police bomb squad removed the bomb from the trunk of a car before detonating it at a landfill.
