AURORA - The Aurora Fire Department had to shut down an annual chemical roundup Saturday, because a man brought in crystallized picric acid.
Picric acid can be as dangerous as dynamite when it crystallizes.
The Aurora Fire Department says nobody was injured.
The bomb squad and the Aurora Fire Department will move the chemical to a safe place to blow it up.
This roundup day was rescheduled after the September floods and it is uncertain whether or not the day will be rescheduled again.
