Hazardous Flare Blown Up On Depoe Bay Beach

By Jim McCoy Thu 3rd October NewsGleneden Beachmarine flare
A beach walker came across a cylinder on a Depoe Bay beach Wednesday that was labeled to "call police or military." KPTV reports (http://bit.ly/1dXIYbM ) the object was a marine flare that is usually dropped from planes or helicopters to mark a location at sea. Because potentially hazardous chemicals may have remained inside, authorities moved it to a remote area of Gleneden Beach and blew it up.
