The Westchester County Bomb Squad rushed to Pelham on Saturday after explosives were discovered in a home.

A man cleaning out his late brother's basement came upon dynamite and called 911. A bomb squad official said the two pounds of dynamite could have blown up the house, but was old and volatile.

Firefighters temporarily evacuated a small area around the home as a precaution.

The dynamite was removed and taken away, and residents were allowed to return home.
