Beachcombers beware of military flares near Sequim

The Associated Press

SEQUIM — Authorities are warning Northwest beachcombers to watch out for smoke flares left over from military exercises.

A unit from Joint Base Lewis-McChord was called Thursday to blow up devices that had washed ashore in a U.S. Fish and Wildlife refuge on Dungeness Spit, near Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula.

The Peninsula Daily News reports the ordnance disposal unit did the same thing last week in the same area.

Wildlife refuge officer Dave Falzetti says the 18-inch incendiary devices are not explosive but can be dangerous if they are duds or still contain phosphorus. He says people should follow the warning label and call the military.
