PRESCOTT, Ariz. — A contractor demolishing the garage of a Prescott, Arizona, house discovered the walls were built out of discarded ammunition boxes from World War II.

The Daily Courier reported on Monday that Phil Nugent uncovered the walls and found the boxes of ammunition for .303-caliber British rifles. The boxes dated back to 1943.

The boxes were empty and were nailed together on a concrete footing with drywall attached on both sides.

Nugent says he didn’t count the total number of boxes, but he saved a few and the rest were hauled away.

The Prescott house was built in 1926, and the garage was a later addition.
