said barrels of pyrodex were found in a foreclosed home at 5502 Wasigo Drive. The 500 pounds of chemical were found.
The Pyrodex is commonly used in Civil War reenactments. It was stored in a container that was not secure so it had became wet, started to decay, and was unstable.
That's a lot of Black powder, of course it wasn't in barrels, as the first article said. To be honest I thought once it was wet it was inert, or is there some other chemical process going on?
