The Overland Park Fire Department was called to the Wycliff West Apartments in the 10500 block of Mastin Street shortly before 11 this morning.
Fire officials say they were called after someone found what they believed to be a stick of dynamite near a dumpster. The person transported the possible explosive to the apartment clubhouse, where an employee called 911.
The Overland Park Police Department's Bomb Squad was called to the scene to investigate the item. An area around the clubhouse was secured according to a news release.
The item was determined to be a road flare. Officials say there is no danger of an explosion and the road flare has been removed from the premises. All roads have been reopened around the complex.
