WEST ALEXANDRIA, Ohio (AP) -- Investigators say they've come across 7,000 pounds of illegal fireworks worth about $25,000 stashed in a garage in western Ohio.
The explosives were discovered in a residential neighborhood across the street from a church in the town of West Alexandria.
The State Fire Marshal's office says a tip led them to the fireworks that included those made for big displays.
Those higher grade fireworks require a permit to be purchased and stored.
The fire marshal's office says it didn't have any information on whether charges will be filed.
