SEQUIM, Wash. (AP) - 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 washed ashore in a U.S. Fish and Wildlife refuge on Dungeness Spit, near Sequim (skwim) on the Olympic Peninsula.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (https://is.gd/TBveU4) 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.
