POTTSVILLE (AP) – A central Pennsylvania building is considered safe after authorities were able to remove a stick of 50-year-old dynamite from a display case.


The Republican-Herald of Pottsville reported a worker found the item inside a cabinet at the Schuylkill Historical Society, and authorities were called in because it had started to deteriorate.


A police chief said there wasn’t any danger.


Bomb disposal experts from the Reading Police Department removed the dynamite Friday and burned it at a remote location.


Authorities said the dynamite was in the case with other mining material for more than three years.
