Police evacuated residents in Azusa Monday after authorities discovered a cache of illegal fireworks inside a residence.

The evacuations began about 3:30 p.m. in the 900 block of West Hollyvale Street, near the Foothill (210) Freeway, where investigators from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the Los Angeles County Fire Department Arson Unit found “a large amount of illegal fireworks” inside a home after serving a search warrant, according to the Azusa Police Department.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad was called to the scene to render the fireworks safe, and the area was expected to be closed to residents and the public until at least 8:30 p.m., according to Azusa police.

No further details were immediately available.
