BIRCHWOOD, WI (KDAL) - The Washburn County Sheriff's Department was called to a home at 200 South Main Street in Birchwood on Monday afternoon regarding hidden explosives that were found there.  The high explosives were discovered by the executor of the estate of a man who had recently died while looking for items to include in an estate sale.  Upon discovery of the explosives, under the floorboards of a metal garden shed, the Sheriff and Fire Departments evacuated nearby residences and called for the assistance of the Marathon-Oneida County Bomb Squad.  Sixty pounds of explosive material were removed from the shed and safely detonated outside the village of Birchwood in a gravel pit.
