A military flare that washed ashore along Juno Beach was removed Tuesday, prompting a brief closure of the nearby pier.
Chopper 5 flew over the scene just before noon and spotted multiple agencies at the scene.
Police had crime tape around a section of the beach where the flare was found.
Just after noon, a firefighter dug up the device and a large amount of white smoke was released from the flare.
Juno Beach police, PBSO and fire rescue helped recover the flare.
The pier was reopened around 12:30 p.m.
