  • CINDY ELLEN RUSSELL / CRUSSELL@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Honolulu police evacuated Hanauma Bay earlier today to investigate a suspicious device.

City officials reopened Hanauma Bay Saturday afternoon after closing it for about three hours to investigate a suspicious device found in the water.

Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Michael Jones said firefighters responded to a suspicious object at about 10:40 a.m.

He said a lifeguard conducting training found the object in the water and brought it to shore, prompting an evacuation of the beach as a precaution.

The police department’s bomb squad removed the item, and the park was reopened at about 1:45 p.m.

Jones said the device was reported to be an expended military-type flare.
