Posted by wlpo on July 12, 2011

People living near Ransom found an unexpected surprise when cleaning out an old building they planned to tear down.

Investigators say homeowners found eight cases of blasting caps and one case of dynamite.  The La Salle County Sheriff’s Office, Kane County Bomb and Arson team along with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms rushed to the scene Monday night and rendered the explosives to be safe.

Several fire departments were on standby at the scene and ComEd cut power until the area was declared safe.
