The OPP Explosives Disposal Unit was called to the town of Spragge, 130-kilometres west of Sudbury, over the weekend.

A property owner found explosives in a vacant lot Friday and called police.

East Algoma O-P-P did evacuate nearby homes for about five hours, as a precaution.

The materials were safely disposed of and now the origin of the explosives remains under investigation.
