Sigel, PA – After a Jefferson County woman found what she believed was a stick of dynamite, a bomb squad was called out to Sigel… only to find that the sticks were not actually dynamite but were road flares.

A Sigel woman had called the volunteer fire station on Tuesday after she said she found the sticks while she was cleaning.

Just as a precaution, the state police, Sigel firefighters, Jefferson County EMS, and Jefferson County Emergency Management were all called out to the road near the fire station.

The road was shut down for several hours while they made sure that all of the sticks were just road flares.

If you see something that concerns you or something that could be a weapon, bomb, or drug, follow this woman’s example and call your local police.
