Explosives found in shed, not dangerous

By: Krista Garvin
EL PASO, Texas- Police say an explosive incident that happened yesterday will not be putting anyone in danger.

El Paso police called out the bomb squad to Lowd Avenue near Fresno yesterday.

The owners of the house found what looked like dynamite in their shed while cleaning.

Police evacuated several houses in the area and the bomb squad investigated for several hours.

The bomb squad was able to take the dynamite and blow it up at the police academy on Scenic Drive.
Officers say they had to blow it up since the dynamite was unstable.
Some believe the sound of the sonic boom was related to the meteor shower, but the two incidents are unrelated.
