POTTSVILLE, Pa. (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 (https://bit.ly/1lXkTmH) 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 says there wasn’t any danger.

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

Authorities say the dynamite had been in the case with other mining material for more than three years.
