The Roseville Rail yard where the 1973 explosions took place was not owned by Union Pacific. The new owners began to remodel the yard by moving traks and other structures. Soon after beginning, the heavy equipment came across many unexploded bombs from the earlier accident. As the area was excavated, new bombs were uncovered and detonated on-site. When homeowners in surrounding areas began to complain about the explosions and some bomb fragments finding their way into nearby homes, the undetonated bombs were then sent to the Bay area to a weapons disposal company. Since this time, no new bombs have been found and the area has been deemed clear and safe from unexploded bombs.
