A four-hour scare in suburban Oak Forest ended Thursday night with police removing fireworks from a house.

Police turned out in force about 4 p.m. after reports of a man with a gun.

They surrounded a home and evacuated others nearby.

They suspected the man with the gun was inside and there were concerns from neighbors about possible powerful explosives.

It turns out no one was inside the home, but police were removing those fireworks from the home Thursday evening.
