Police say some items thought to be dynamite in a Chester County home turned out to be road flares.Authorities were called out around 11:30 a.m. to the 1000 block of Millbrook Road in Easttown Twp., Chester County.

Investigators say the flares were found inside inside after a relative was cleaning out the home of a deceased relative, and were mistaken for explosives.

The bomb squad was called out.

After the sticks were determined to be road flares, the scene was cleared.
