JACKSON (CBS13) – Residents of Jackson are heading back home after demolition crews found dynamite in an abandoned barn.

Crews were preparing to demolish the barn on Wednesday to make way for a parking lot when they discovered the old dynamite. The bomb squad was called in and 175 nearby residents were forced from their homes.

An acetone solution was used to neutralize the dynamite before it was detonated.

Investigators will go back through the barn Thursday to make sure no other explosives are inside.
