Bomb squad destroys marker flare found on beach
DENNIS, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad says it exploded suspected ordnance discovered at a Cape Cod beach over the weekend.
The Dennis Police Department received a report of an unexploded ordinance Sunday afternoon from a person walking on the beach.
The Cape Cod Times reports the item was determined to be a deteriorated marine marker flare that washed ashore.
Officials decided to explode the item in place because it was unsafe to transport.
