HONOLULU (AP) - A military explosives team was called to a Honolulu beach Saturday after volunteers picking up trash suspected they'd found unexploded ordnance.

A spokesman for the Honolulu Fire Department said that military investigators determined the device was a flare used during training that had not gone off.

Capt. Gary Lum said that the flare is used as a marker on the ocean or during nighttime exercises.

The military removed the device and took it to Schofield Barracks to be destroyed, Lum said.
