Woman uncovers sticks of dynamite in Cabbagetown home

A woman believed she found old rolls of coins on Tuesday but instead learned they were nine sticks of crystallized dynamite.

Police bomb squad and three fire trucks were on the scene at a home on Sackville Street in Toronto's Cabbagetown. The woman said she believed the coin rolls belonged to her father.

That area of the city is known as an historic district.
