WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -- The CT State Police Bomb Squad responded to a building in Waterbury on Monday afternoon for reports of explosive materials having been found.

Crews responded to the Carriage House on Prospect Street after YMCA staff members found the materials.

The building was not occupied at the time, but some nearby buildings were evacuated as a precaution.

Police said the materials appeared to be very old, and were believed to have been left from an old or original construction project.

Bomb squad technicians destroyed the material once it was removed from the building.
